Written for SLPs who care for children with vocal disorders, this is the second book by the team who wrote Pediatric Voice Disorders. This new publication is specially designed for SLPs to have access to the medical information at a special price. To that end, certain chapters have been removed from Pediatric Voice Disorders, which focuses on the techniques of surgical care, and other chapters have been reshaped to highlight issues of office based diagnosis and intervention. Several new chapters have been added, including a fascinating and comprehensive chapter by Katherine Verdolini which reviews the literature regarding voice therapy in children as well as an additional chapter on the work-up and treatment of children with Velopharyngeal Insufficiency. The authors have provided a cross-fertilization of thoughts and ideas that comes from putting together a seemingly diverse group of specialists and having them focus on specific pediatric disease-based and pediatric voice pathology-based topics. Within this book, members of each specialty attend to these questions and comment upon how the specialties can best work together towards obtaining diagnoses and rendering unified and comprehensive treatment.
Adrienne B. Hancock, PhD, Doody's Review Service (2010):
"... A high quality book and valuable resource for clinicians working with children who have voice disorders, particularly medically involved pathologies."
Martin L. Spencer, MA, CCC-SLP, Advance for Speech-Language Pathologists and Audiologists (March 2011):
"Speech-language pathologists who specialize in clinical voice pathology are the target audience for a handsome new text titled ''Clinical Management of Children's Voice Disorders'' by Christopher Hartnick, MD, and Mark Boseley, MD. The focus is on medical and surgical interventions, rather than behavioral. The book features 25 authors contributing to 16 chapters on such welcome and well-covered topics as laryngeal electromyography (LEMG), pulmonology, airway reconstruction and singing."
