The purpose of voice therapy is to eliminate difficulties by creating vocal sounds in the larynx. Following therapy your voice should sound stronger as it was before. You can use voice therapy to prevent such problems by training your voice beforehand. Voice therapy can be used for most types of voice disorders. Individuals with voice abnormalities are diagnosed, assessed, planned for, and treated by speech-language pathologists. These healthcare professionals have been educated to assess voice usage and vocal function in order to establish the causes of voice loss and the most effective therapies for restoring and sustaining voice output.
Swallowing is a complex procedure which includes almost all the articulators without which swallowing will be impossible. Different disorders can impact swallowing. Swallowing management involves compensatory measures to enhance swallowing control and prevent aspiration, as well as direct treatment procedures such as exercises to increase total range of motion and oral muscular power. Swallowing manoeuvres alter the timing or intensity of swallowing movements in order to properly transport food or fluids from the mouth and throat to the oesophagus. Food and liquid consistency are changed to increase control and allow for safe oral ingestion.
Auditory Verbal Therapy
Auditory Verbal therapy is a highly specialized early intervention family centered coaching program that provides parents and care-givers with the tools to support their hearing impaired child’s speech and language development. A hearing aid or cochlear implant may be necessary for these kids. In children, the auditory cortex requires stimulation early in life due to its neuroplasticity. A child develops a listening attitude through play-based sessions using the Auditory Verbal approach, so that they become automatic at listening to the surrounding sounds. Therefore, children with hearing loss are better equipped to develop listening and spoken language skills, enhancing their opportunities and giving them an equal start in life.
The purpose of speech therapy is to assess and treat communication problems and disorders of the voice. Speech therapy techniques can be used to improve communication, which includes, articulation therapy, language intervention activities and so on depending on the type of speech and language disorders. Speech therapy may be required to treat speech disorders that develop in childhood or speech impairments in adults caused by strokes or brain injuries. The process begins with an assessment by a speech-language pathologist. Speech therapy can increase communication and self-confidence with early intervention. It is an effective way for assisting children and adults in improving their communication abilities.
