The Voice Diagnostic Protocol: A Practical Guide to the Diagnosis of Voice Disorders, Volume 1
This practical manual, intended for both students and clinicians, prov ides detailed information regarding the rationale and procedures for a n array of readily available, relatively low-cost methods of voice ana lysis that are collectively called the "Voice Diagnostic Protocol." Th e book focuses on how to do a comprehensive assessment of voice functi on, incorporating history-taking; perceptual analysis; objective analy sis of vocal frequency, intensity, and quality; examination of structu res; evaluation of respiratory and phonatory ability and control; and evaluation of the possible effects of excessive muscular tension. Each diagnostic procedure covered includes a discussion of its purpose, it s theoretical basis, guidelines for use, related normative data, and i nterpretation of possible abnormal responses . Case studies, an electr onic tutorial with actual voice samples, and an extensive list of refe rences enhance in-depth study.
