Glen Nowell, MSc, S-LP (C), CASLPO, Canadian Journal of Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology, (2009): "...A varied and interdisciplinary cross-section, which... appropriately represents an eclectic approach to the artistic science of voice therapy... Well conceived and the editors' comments are on the mark. [Review refers to the First Edition.]" 'Exercises for Voice Therapy' aims to expand our offering of treatment options by providing practical exercises to inspire Speech and Language Therapists (SLTs) working with a wide range of voice patients (clients) - encouraging creativity through evidence-based practice. Content includes material suitable for novice to highly experienced voice practitioners and is useful in assisting the development of treatment plans and session materials. In this second edition, fresh perspective has been brought to the therapeutic process with the inclusion of 24 new exercises. - An accompanying CD is included to provide an aural model for those exercises that may be difficult to interpret from the written text alone. - Content includes material suitable for treatment of a wide variety of voice disorders such as muscle tension dysphonia, nodules and vocal fold palsy, through to working with paediatric voices, transgender clients, aphonics, clients with vocal tremor, puberphonia and those with paradoxical vocal fold dysfunction. ================================================================ Janet Munro, Communicating Voice, The British Voice Association, (2014): "'Exercises for Voice Therapy' offers genuine insight into the range of methods currently used in voice therapy from a variety of viewpoints. - to be used most effectively in clinical practice, SLTs seeking to apply its techniques will have good theoretical and a basic practical knowledge of the application of therapy techniques already currently in use to treat specific voice disorders. Non-SLT voice practitioners (singing teachers/voice tutors) may also find much of this resource useful as an insight into up-to-date, effective methods of working with the voice to achieve specific outcomes for the non-disordered voice. It includes exercises which focus upon improving parameters of voice production such as volume, pitch range and resonance, plus it offers original ideas for the delivery of topics such as maintenance of the voice, speaking to larger audiences and developing vocal expression. Due to client individuality, we all know the more tools SLTs have in their toolkit to deliver effective therapy, the increased potential for positive therapy outcomes. This publication encourages sharing of effective practice to improve the discipline overall, so we may all become better voice practitioners."
