Voice Therapy for Children

An Instructional Manual

A speech therapy resource for clinicians working with both Cantonese- and English-speaking children.

Voice Therapy for Children is a bilingual instructional manual that aims to maximize speech therapy students’ and clinicians’ competence, knowledge, and effectiveness in managing pediatric voice caseloads. This is a unique text that goes beyond general descriptions of therapeutic techniques and physiologic principles.

Designed to serve Cantonese- and English-speaking children, this manual provides a clear and systematic overview of practical issues and clinical tips, laying out the steps and criteria for therapy programs. With detailed instructions for each voice therapy session, clinicians will find answers to questions such as: How can children be kept engaged in voice therapy? How can clinicians facilitate the learning and performance of voicing techniques? How can age-appropriate practice stimuli and games be selected?
This book’s ready-to-use clinical materials, including picture cards for eliciting stimulus and record forms for clinical use, will be essential for clinicians in their early careers, as well as undergraduates and graduates in professional courses.
