Your voice and Good Vocal Hygiene

Your voice is affected by the things you ask it to do on a daily basis, and can be affected by the environment. Symptoms of voice disorder include: Complete loss of voice, vocal fatigue, hoarseness, breathiness, a husky quality, a squeaky sound, a harsh/strained quality, reduced pitch, loudness, and a reduction of vocal range or flexibility. When we talk about vocal hygiene, we are talking about increasing or decreasing behaviours and/or exposure to certain environments that promote a good voice and facilitate verbal communication. A healthy voice results from a combination of healthy voice behaviours and a healthy environment.

Educational Resources for Special Needs

Children and adults with communication issues often lack the information and/or skills to communicate effectively which can lead to a variety of social and behavioral difficulties. This section is designed to target some of the most basic functions of communication that need individualized, direct instruction and support. It is important to recognize that for individuals with communication disorders, these skills generally are not “picked up” over time by watching others.

Hearing aids are the best all-around solution for individuals with hearing loss, but other assistive listening devices (ALDs) can help people with hearing loss navigate specific communication demands. A frequency-modulated (FM) system is an ALD that makes it easier for people with hearing loss to hear what others are saying in noisy environments, like a theater, school, church, museum or other public place.

This wireless system, also called a personal FM system, uses radio waves to deliver speech signals directly from the speaker's mouth to the listener's ears. Components of an FM system. Hearing Aid- FM Simulation.avi. Assistive Technology: Resource Roundup.
