Speech Diagnosis

Speech diagnosis and testing typically includes:

Consultation with an otolaryngologist: An initial medical exam by an ear-nose-throat doctor to rule out any medical conditions associated with the throat is the first step in every speech diagnosis.

A clinical speech evaluation: Perceptual assessment of articulation, voice, resonance, breathing, fluency, and prosody; Diagnostic therapy to determine potential for speech change

Acoustic analysis: Recording and measurement of speech, in order to compare your speech to norms and to monitor your speech over time; This includes perturbation measures, spectrography, and electroglottography, which determines the amount of vocal fold contact during vibration.
