During our October 16, 2013 continuing education workshop, “Voice Disorders in Adults and Children, and Therapy Strategies”, the speaker Chandler Clover Thompson, D.M.A., M.S., CCC-SLP, a classically-trained singer and former professor of singing, talked about how she works with vocal professionals who have sustained a vocal injury. Dr. Thompson holds a Doctor of Musical Arts degree in Vocal Performance, and a Master of Science in Speech-Language Pathology from New York Medical College, who specializes in evaluation and treatment of professional voice users. As Senior Speech Pathologist, Dr. Thompson is the Coordinator of the voice and airway service at Brigham and Women’s Hospital.
Through the use of a variety of techniques, including practicing on kazoos, we discussed how to modify the environment to minimize vocal strain.
In this video, Dr. Thompson demonstrated signing in the middle voice.
