1 ADVENTURES IN VOICE A Whole New Way of Doing Things for Kids! OVERVIEW OF PROGRAM K. Verdolini Abbott, Ph.D., CCC-SLP Rita Hersan, M.S., CCC-SLP David Hammer, M.A., CCC-SLP Jan Potter Reed, M.S., CCC-SLP September 2010

2 Which children are appropriate? Children with phonogenic voice problems (phonotrauma, MTD) Generally ages 4-11 Generally cognitively intact

3 Other children Program may be applicable with minor adaptations Generally children with voice problem who would benefit from a change in VF adduction Clinician’s discretion ng.JPG

4 Who may provide the program? SLP (CCC or otherwise licensed) Received 2-day training in AIV from Verdolini & associates Passing knowledge test receives additional certificate

5 Fundamental framework “What” of training  “Easy vibrations voice” – Defined as easy voice produced with perceptible anterior oral vibrations – Likely corresponding with Barely ad/abducted vocal folds Large-amplitude, low- impact vocal fold oscillations Large AC flows, small DC flows, and small PL Relatively intense voice ng.JPG

6 Fundamental framework “How” of training  Motivation/remembering: – Setting the stage with elaborated stories Learning principles – Engage child’s active (cognitive and physical) participation in the therapy process. – Allow child to explore; don’t hover; provide feedback but not too much and not too quickly. – Direct child’s attention and active responses to sensations, perceptions related to output in self and others, not biomechanics. – Work on voice production as a whole, not component pieces. – Make goals for advancement in the program specific. – Mix up simple/complex tasks. – Provide opportunity for child to explore vocal target in numerous contexts relevant to the child. being-active.jpg

7 Fundamental framework “If” of training  Numerous principles including – Engage the child – Involve the parent – Written/audio instructions – Accountability (follow-up monitoring) – Clinician presence

9 Progression through program Competence should be shown for goals in each lesson before proceeding to the next session (~90%, i.e. “quite well”) If not, back up and re- do

10 Program duration Depends on child and setting Created to be 8-12 sessions (weeks)

11 (In case you wonder) Relation to LMRVT – Adult LMRVT modified for children – Theory: Verdolini Abbott – Practice: Road testing and brainstorming Hersan, Hammer, Kessler However – Programs are sufficiently different one can no longer be trained in one and “invent” the other
