Voice Therapy

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 Therapy

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.

Speech Therapy

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.

TELE THERAPY AVT

As patients look for more accessible ways to get healthcare, the use of tele practice in healthcare has increased over the past few years. The use of information & technology in healthcare is perceived to play a significant role in the delivery of health care services. It has the potential to enhance patient quality of care, lower costs, and improve procedures in contemporary healthcare.

Tele practice AVT is also one of the recent advancements in this field. Intervention and rehabilitation after fitting of hearing technology is essential to achieve the best communication outcomes for individuals with hearing loss. Traditionally, AVT sessions are conducted face-to-face, but following the pandemic, tele practice has emerged as a more secure and reliable option for patients.

Regardless of a client's location, tele practice provides individualized rehabilitation services. Clients can take part in tele-rehabilitation if they have access to high-speed Internet and use off-the-shelf technology. This minimizes the need for frequent family travel, which cuts down related expenses, time commitments, and other stressors.

Here are few advantages Tele practice offers:

  • Parents and caregivers do not have to travel, saving time and other resources.

  • Children are more comfortable, because they are in their own home with their parents and using familiar toys.

  • Adults may also be more comfortable receiving services in their own homes.

  • The setting is the natural environment, and carryover of targeted communication goals and objectives into the child’s or adult’s daily routines can be easier.

An auditory-verbal therapist creates activities for the child's listening and spoken language goals during a face-to-face session. The exercise is demonstrated by the therapist during the session, after which the parent is given control of it. The therapist has a coaching position and instructs the parents on how to connect with their kid to promote listening and spoken language.

When performing AVT over the phone, the therapist takes great care to explain to the parent exactly how to get ready for, introduce, and engage in an activity with their kid. During a session, the therapist records the child's performance, and the parent and therapist talk about the child's development after each session.

Tele practice removes several barriers, such as family’s hectic schedules, pandemics, and the lack of a qualified therapist in a location nearby.

BHII has recently come up with the service of tele practice where we offer the facility to overcome such barriers and make the process of AVT smoother and easier for our patients.

At BHII we have one of the most skilled audiologists who have experience in tele practice which sets us apart from any other center in India as tele practice is not widely practiced across the country.
