The videos were very helpful and kept me engaged with the material. Her presentation was well-balanced between causes of phonotrauma and solutions/therapy. I like that she didn't spend time on anatomy and physiology per se but gave me more info on solutions.
Specific examples of treatment strategies and patient/parent friendly descriptions. I definitely feel better prepared for therapy now. I've done a number of courses online through speechpathology.com and while they have all been good, this one has best prepared me for the reality of treatment. Enough detail but not too much focus on details of etiology etc. Thank you!
