In this blog I provide you the downloads to make simple devices to help children on the autism spectrum to increase awareness of voice volume. At the bottom of this post, you can check out what the meters look like when they are finished. The other two meters are used the same way.  Proceed through steps one through four and make up your own social skills learning activities.
These aren’t hard to make and they are handy social skills tools for kids on the autism spectrum.

However, some conditions may occur which require more attention than avoiding speech and dissolving a handful of lozenges. Therapies for both conditions include the simple arrest of harmful habits of smoking, excessive shouting, and exposure to extreme cold.
Vocal fold nodules present as mostly harmless growths on the surface of either or both vocal folds. Paradoxical Vocal Fold Movement (PVFM) is a periodic condition which interrupts normal vocal fold function with brief failure of one or both folds by closing or opening or paralysis at inappropriate times. If you have questions about speech therapy for voice problems or results focused speech therapy, contact your local doctor, who will arrange for you to see a speech pathologist.
Our Speech Pathologist, Dietitian and Skincare Nurse offer 15min free health screening consults. Do you sometimes feel like your voice is straining, hoarse or scratchy, even if you haven’t been talking a lot or loudly.

If you answered ‘yes’ to any of these questions then you may be having trouble with your voice. Whether you’re experiencing problems with your voice due to chronic illness (colds, allergies or bronchitis), exposure to irritants (like Ammonia), talking all day at work, or even just from cheering at a concert or game, Speech Therapy Centres of Canada can help you get your voice back. Your voice is produced by the vibration of the vocal folds opening and closing rapidly as air from the lungs passes through them. When your voice is working well, there is a balance and flexibility between the breath, vocal fold vibration, and the vocal tract. If you have not already seen an Ear Nose and Throat (ENT) doctor for your voice problem, the S-LP will suggest a referral through your family doctor. Others, like reflux laryngitis, may be treated with a combination of voice therapy and medication. Other helpful tips include breathing exercises with a deeper and slower rhythm, drinking more water, occasional steam inhalation, rest of voice, and vocal exercises of sequentially rising and lowering pitch while voicing a repeating, single syllable.
They may be caused by acid reflux, smoking and breathing cold air in addition to much the same causes as for nodules. It is a complex combination of a person’s physical, mental, emotional and social health factors. ENT Wellbeing, located at ENT Clinic in Randwick, Sydney, are here to provide advice, treatment and practical remedies. Speech Therapy Centres of Canada offers in-home or in-clinic treatment and therapy for voice disorders. The quality of your voice is determined by the health of the vocal folds themselves, as well as how you use the muscles in your vocal tract –the spaces in your throat, mouth, and nasal passages.

A speech-language pathology assessment investigates all these areas and how they are contributing to your voice problem. Even if surgery is required, S-LP treatment can help with preparation for the surgery and recovery afterwards. The therapy may consist of an established program or, the therapist may combine several techniques. I assume it has something to do with theory of mind deficits;  if their voice sounds like the right volume to their own ears while they are speaking, then they must assume that a listener can hear it the same way.
It may be something as simple as watching a sporting event, cheering and shouting excessively. Passionate about health and wellbeing, we write about issues relevant to our clinical practice. But, when we are having trouble with our voice, or we’ve lost it, we realize how important it is to keep it healthy and working well. They may exhibit any or all of the following symptoms: hoarseness to the point of complete loss of voice, a course or raw feeling when trying to speak, a short range of pitch, and localized pain or sharp, alternating pain between the ears. These are also typical symptoms of just losing the voice due to excessive shouting but if the symptoms endure longer than a couple of weeks, it is possible that nodules are present.
The easiest remedy is often to stop talking and rest the voice until it returns to a normal condition.
