About the Institute for Voice and Speech
Speech Pathology covers a broad range of communicative disorders involving dysfunction of the vocal tract or its components: the larynx, lips, tongue or jaw. Disorders of movement of any part of the vocal tract or the respiratory system may influence the sound emitted as speech.
Voicing, or the source of sound produced at the vocal folds, may be affected in isolation or voice deficits may exist in combination with other speech and language disorders. The symptoms of voice disorders may result from a variety of primary deficits including neurological disease, trauma, respiratory conditions, or developmental disorders. Disordered speech reflects symptoms of dysfunction in underlying mechanisms and is often highly treatable.
