Initial Consultation: 


The purpose of the initial assessment session is to gather detailed and relevant background information about you and to investigate your vocal capabilities and difficulties. The initial assessment is usually 60 minutes in duration. You will be asked to provide a history of your voice use and any relevant information, which could be contributing to your voice problem. You will be asked to read a short passage and perform a variety of simple vocal exercises. Breath support, pitch quality, volume and range/flexibility of your voice will be assessed from these tasks. Information is gathered by discussing the Assessment results and you will be provided with some exercises to take home to begin working on. A follow-up appointment after the initial assessment session is usually required. Follow-up session(s) are important to determine whether the treatment recommendations are working for you and further exercises and treatment will be provided as required. Referral to an ENT (Ear Nose and Throat specialist), laryngeal Physiotherapist or massage therapist may be recommended. 



Referrers are sent a letter containing a brief summary following the initial assessment session. 


NDIS Reports:

ENT Requirements:


An ENT referral is not required for an appointment, however seeing an ENT/ Laryngologist can determine if there is any pathology contributing to a voice problem and if there is any concern about vocal cord Pathology it may be recommended that you see an ENT/Laryngologist before attending for an assessment. This is to ensure that the correct therapy and exercises are provided to assist you.
