Assessment and Treatment of Age-Related Voice Disorders (On Demand Webinar)
Already an ASHA Learning Pass subscriber?
Voice disorders are a prevalent and persistent problem in older adults. As the number of people over age 65 continues to increase, SLPs likely will see a growing demand for their services to treat age-related communication problems, including disorders related to the “aging voice.” This webinar will explore the typical age-related changes in each of the three major subsystems involved with voice production (respiratory, laryngeal, and resonatory) and explain how these changes affect vocal quality and ability. The presenters also will discuss appropriate assessment and intervention options, providing an overview of medical, surgical, and behavioral treatments.
You will be able to:
- describe the typical physiological and functional changes of the aging voice
- identify assessment options for patients with age-related voice issues
- identify treatment options for patients with age-related voice issues
