-Auditory Feedback: letting the patient hear themselves when they are speaking
-Change of loudness: too loud or too soft. Many of the vocal pathologies experienced by children are related to such excesses of loudness as screaming and yelling.
-Chant talk: reciting many syllables on one continuous tone, creating in effect a singing monotone.
-Chewing: make the patient pretend to chew
-Confidential voice: have the client talk whisper voice
-Counseling (explanation of problem): counseling the patient, including direct explanations of the voice problem, may be more effective with the patient than applying various voice techniques.
-Digital manipulation: finger pressure on the thyroid cartilage can be applied by the clinician in different ways for different problems.
-Elimination of abuses: eliminate clients abusive behaviors
-Establishing a new pitch:establish a different/better pitch level for the client to improve vocal quality and loudness
-Focus: encourage the client to use good focus of the voice which is characterized by the voice coming from the middle of the mouth just above the tongue
-Glottal fry: start the client off by talking with a glottal fry in order to relax the VFs and improve the voice in a dysphonic patient
-Head positioning: position the client so that they have good posture and a good head position to produce a better voice. Helpful in patients with unilateral VF paralysis
-Hierarchy analysis: Have patient list various situations in his/her life that ordinarily produce some anxiety and arrange those situations in a sequential order from the least to the most anxiety provoking.
-Inhalation phonation:beneficial for patients with functional aphonia and functional dysphonia. It introduces the high-pitched inhalation voice which is produced by true VF vibration.
-Laryngeal message: beneficial for patients with functional voice disorders in which structural or neurogenic factors cannot be identified. This approach offers gentle manipulation and massage of the larynx.
-Masking: the use of masking can change phonational stress by increasing masking (background noise). The louder the masking, the louder the voice produced.
-Nasal/glide stimulation: use words that contain many nasal and glide consonants to help the client produce desired targeted vocalizations
-Open-mouth approach: encourage the client to develop more nasal openness which reduces generalized vocal hyperfunction
-Pitch inflections: encourage the client to talk in multiple different pitches
-Redirected phonation: SLP helps client find other means of phonation (coughing, gargling, throat clearing, laughing, etc)
-Relaxation: (no description needed lol)
-Respiratory training: help client develop respiratory control- inhalation and exhalation
-Tongue protrusion /i/: helpful for patients with ventricular phonation or tightness in the voice. Have client protrude tongue (no dip sherlock)
-Visual feedback: provide client with visual feedback (ex mirror)
-Yawm-sign: have the client yawn and then sigh (no shit right?). Helps minimize tension with hyperfunction
