If you experience vocal impairments related to vocal abuse or organic changes to vocal mechanisms resulting from resonance disorders, cancer or laryngitis, Good Shepherd’s Voice Therapy Program can help.
The Voice Therapy Program is designed to help improve your communication skills so you can successfully function at home, school, work or in the community.
