Presented by: SA Swallowing Services, PLLC, Nashville, Tennessee

Course Dates: September 7 & 8, 2019


To provide a two-day videostroboscopy training course for Speech-Language Pathologists in the use of rigid and flexible endoscopy to assess the health and function of the vocal folds during phonation.

Objectives: At the completion of this course participants should be able to:

  1. Identify the anatomy required for normal voicing, and describe physiology and biomechanics of normal vocal fold vibration;
  2. Describe two phenomena of visual perceptions of apparent motion, and how these phenomena are used in stroboscopy to assess vocal fold vibration;
  3. Describe the roles of the voice therapist and the otolaryngologist in the use of stroboscopy information in patient voice care;
  4. Describe and use a standard comprehensive voice evaluation procedure including a stroboscopy recording protocol;
  5. Identify abnormal vocal fold vibration patterns, and determine the underlying structural, biomechanical and aerodynamic reasons for those abnormalities.
