The new companion DVD illustrates voice problems in children and adults, as well as methods of relevant therapy, enabling students and professionals alike to see and hear what they are reading about. The seventh edition divides voice disorders into three causal areas (functional, organic, and neurogenic) with a separate chapter devoted to each area. Evaluation procedures are then presented with some emphasis given to particular evaluation strategies for identified causal areas. The smooth transition between these areas reinforces understanding. Disorders not often addressed ? including sulcus vocalis, muscle tension dysphonia, and paradoxial vocal fold dysfunction ? are also covered.
