Seeking SLPs for a new survey exploring voice therapy terminology!

If you are a speech-language pathologist (SLP) or clinical fellow currently providing voice services to adults in any capacity, we hope you’ll consider helping with our study exploring current terminology used by SLPs in voice therapy. Participation consists of completing an anonymous, online survey–roughly 15 minutes in length–that will ask you to provide information about the language and specific terminology you might use when working with clients within voice evaluation or therapy. The study has been approved by the Weill Cornell Medicine Institutional Review Board (IRB). 

Eligibility: If you are a licensed SLP or SLP clinical fellow currently providing voice evaluation and/or therapy services to adult clients in English, you qualify to participate in this study. Participation is completely voluntary and you may discontinue at any time without consequence. Participation in the survey offers no compensation; however, your time and efforts will contribute to improved collective understanding of the current practices of speech pathologists working with voice clients.

We value your input and hope that you will share with those in your networks who may be eligible to participate. More details about the survey and the survey itself can be found at the link below. We thank you in advance for your time, support, and contributions to this project.
