This workshop is focused on providing research-based and ASHA approved voice treatment techniques that can apply to a variety of voice disorders.  Speech-Language Pathologists, who occasionally see a voice client, will learn how to work with this disorder and best practices in the area of voice. In addition, participants will explore different voice therapy treatment techniques during a hands-on/role playing portion.
