Children with voice disorders may have difficulty speaking, singing or even breathing during exercise. If your child has been diagnosed with a voice disorder, we can help.
Our team has specialized training in voice disorders and breathing difficulties to help your child regain control over their voice and breathing, so they can communicate with others and/or return to competing in sports.
Our speech-language pathologists work closely with your child's medical team to make sure we are providing the most comprehensive care possible.
When you bring your child to Cook Children's speech therapy, you are choosing a team that uses the most up-to-date diagnostics and treatments for voice disorders and breathing difficulties. The care we provide our patients and families is based on proven data, patient experience and medical expertise.
