Speech-language pathology and the singing voice: Implications for clinician training and suggestions for assessment and intervention
by Lukkonen, Eva, M.M., California State University, Long Beach, 2009, 77; 1481788
Abstract (Summary)

Singers with voice problems provide a unique challenge for speech-language pathologists and singing voice teachers. Though it has been discussed in the literature that both speech pathologists and singing teachers have worked with this population in the past, there are few if any conclusions regarding what qualifications are needed or special training is required for a professional to best suit the needs of the injured singing voice. Furthermore, assessment tools and therapy techniques for the speaking voice have been applied to singers in the clinical setting, but there are few tools and therapy techniques to address the specific needs of the singing voice.

This project endeavors to discuss some of the training that professionals need to be able to work with the disordered singing voice. It reviews currently available assessment and intervention tools, and also introduces tools in development for the singing voice specifically.
