Voice Disorders "Keepers" for Clients and Classes

By Judith Maginnis Kuster

In reorganizing my "Introduction to Communication Disorders" class last spring, I scoured the Internet for new materials and was amazed at what I uncovered to embed in my PowerPoint lectures or assign to students to augment the text and lectures. For just one section alone, voice and voice disorders, I found enough treasures for practically an entire course. The materials below can be very helpful for classroom instruction and in-service presentations, but also to enhance clients' understanding of their disorder and its treatment. Many additional sites can be found with a careful search of the Internet, but these were several of my favorites.


Audio Samples Videos Presentations/Curricula Informational Brochures, Leaflets and Short Articles
