For SLPs who work with aging individuals, treatment of voice disorders can be complicated by differentiating between voice changes that occur as part of the normal aging process and voice disorders which can accompany aging. This presentation covers information regarding the normal vs. the disordered aging voice as well as treatment techniques that can be used to strengthen and enhance the voice of the aging person.

The speaker was very well organized and ended exactly on time. It was a nice touch to have us involved by asking us questions to which we could respond. It was such a pleasure to listener to a speaker who is not only very knowledgeable but uses good voice quality.
The presenter was very knowledgable and provided audible examples of technique and voice impairments. Her presenation was very easy to listen to and digest. She provided specific therapy strategies that can be used in therapy. I felt encouraged by her to practice skills I have not used in a while and to try some new ones.
