Voice refers to the system that must be in place for us to make sound. We need to have adequate strength and control of our respiration (inhalation and exhalation) and phonation (vocal cord vibration) as well as the ability to direct that sound through either our nasal or oral cavities. Children who present with a hoarse, raspy or breathy voice as well as children who demonstrate periods of aphonia (no voice) would benefit from Voice Therapy.

Voice problems are the most common communication disorder, impacting approximately 7.5 million people in the USA. The main goal of voice therapy is to optimize the dynamic interactions between the respiratory, laryngeal, and resonating sub-systems for an improved vocal output across all communication tasks. Considering that each client presents with unique anatomy and physiology of phonation, we need the flexibility to determine the most effective voice production technique that will be used in therapy. We also need a voice therapy model that will facilitate generalization and maintenance of the "new" voice.

There are many effective therapeutic voice techniques available for children. Intervention for voice is often initiated after an ENT, otolaryngologist or pulmonologist as well as a Speech Language pathologist have completed evaluations indicating the source of the voice problems. A child's pediatrician may refer a child directly to a Speech and Language clinic.



My husband and I are grateful to Cobblestone for everything they have done for our daughter Scarlett. We have had the pleasure of working with Lynn and it has been a life changing experience for our whole family. Scarlett has gained so much confidence in her abilities and we feel fortunate to have had this opportunity to work with them on her speech goals. We know that with their tools she will have a different level of learning than that of her peers. In addition, Jodie has been a delight to work with from getting us started to answering any questions we have in a timely manner. They treat you like part of the family and they truly care about your child.

We moved here last year and found Cobblestone to continue my then 4 year olds Apraxia therapy with Miss Samantha. Last week he had his last session. It’s been a wonderful year working with Samantha and Lynn and we are going to miss them so much. Samantha was a great therapist and worked so well with my son. Lynn is such a wonderful, kind, and caring woman and I truely enjoyed our afternoon chats. She runs her business so professionally, yet when you walk in the door, you feel like family. We had some issues with our insurance company and she worked so hard to get things fixed so that we didn’t have to deal with them ourselves.

We love Cobblestone! We have worked with several therapists over the past 3 years at Cobblestone. Each one has been easy to work with and adaptable to my sons needs. Due to Covid restrictions, we are seeing Kimberly remotely every week. I wasn't sure if remote therapy would be a great fit for my son, but she has made the transition extremely easy and engaging. He continues to work on and gain skills with every session. Kimberly is able to hold his attention for most of the session. Way to adapt Cobblestone! Thank you.
