The efficacy of voice treatment

Hicks, Douglas M. PhD

Current Opinion in Otolaryngology & Head and Neck Surgery : June 1999 - Volume 7 - Issue 3 - p 125
Speech Therapy And Rehabilitation

Discussion of two treatment efficacy review articles allows for a comprehensive view of the state of voice treatment effectiveness. Relevant literature has grown in number and sophistication such that clinicians can be optimistic about the real benefits provided to their patients. Review of current literature related to behavioral, medical, and surgical therapy justifies that confidence.
