The Center for Pediatric Voice Disorders at Cincinnati Children’s conducts research into a number of topics related to vocal health and voice disorders. By investigating key questions about pediatric voice disorders, we are able to provide cutting-edge diagnosis and treatment for children with a wide range of conditions.
The research team is also interested in the benefits of early speech/voice intervention following airway reconstruction to decrease compensatory voicing behaviors. In a related measure, we are conducting research to examine the reliability of perceptual measures of pediatric vocal quality by expert raters.
One of our main research goals is to
establish a database of patients. This allows us over time to follow the
progression of changes in vocal quality and laryngeal function pre- and
post-surgery (immediately, post-three months, post-six months, etc.).
Establishing the database will allow surgeons and speech-language
pathologists to discuss expected voice outcomes over time. You may be
asked at some point in time to become a member of our patient database.
