The Voice Monsters {Voice Therapy Techniques}

Wednesday, March 27, 2013

I was searching TpT and I realized there are not many resources for Voice Therapy. I know not many people deal with voice disorders, but last year I had 3 students with nodules on my caseload! Thus the inspiration for:

  2. Thank you CC! In my CFY I had 3 with voice disorders!! Now I only have one. I have been attending seminars, reading and practicing the last 3 years, so I figured I should share the knowledge and things I have been working on! :)

  3. Thanks for the great product, I'm looking forward to using it for my one voice client (I'm a CFY! I feel like part of the club). I'm excited to use it with a fun monster app! Thought I'd share it with you for the great new material you shared: http://ipaiduplay.blogspot.com/2013/02/app-y-hour-monster-at-end-of-this-book.html
