Exercises for Voice Therapy, Third Edition contains 84 exercises contributed from 55 clinicians to assist speech-language pathologists in developing treatment plans and session materials for children and adults with all types of voice disorders. The exercises provide step-by-step instruction of varied difficulty levels. Some are suitable for novice voice clinicians, whereas others require a greater depth of experience to be used most effectively. Similarly, voice clients will find some exercises more challenging than others. Each chapter focuses on a particular topic or parameter of the voice production system that may need to be addressed. The exercises can be used in a variety of ways, depending on the personal approach of each clinician and the needs of the individual client. Some of the exercises offer a basic framework for building an entire session, whereas others may fulfill a more specific need within a broader framework. Each exercise is presented in a consistent format for easy integration into speech-language pathologists’ therapy sessions. New to the Third Edition: *17 new exercises with 8 new contributors (for a total of 84 exercises from 55 contributors). *A new chapter on Counseling in Voice Therapy, containing four new exercises from three new contributors who are experts in the field of counseling. *A new chapter on Adherence and Generalization, addressing two significant and common problems in voice therapy, including three new exercises and a new contributor. *An enhanced chapter on Pediatric Voice Therapy, including three new exercises and two new contributors. *A reorganized chapter on Optimizing Speech Breathing, divided into exercises that focus only on breathing and those that incorporate voice production, to help the clinician select the most appropriate exercises for a given client. *An expanded and reorganized chapter on Special Cases, with chapter sections specifically targeting transgender clients, paradoxical vocal fold motion, client voice problems arising from motor speech disorders, as well as other special populations.

The International Workshop on Models and Analysis of Vocal Emissions for Biomedical Applications (MAVEBA) came into being in 1999 from the particularly felt need of sharing know-how, objectives and results between areas that until then seemed quite distinct such as bioengineering, medicine and singing. MAVEBA deals with all aspects concerning the study of the human voice with applications ranging from the neonate to the adult and elderly. Over the years the initial issues have grown and spread also in other aspects of research such as occupational voice disorders, neurology, rehabilitation, image and video analysis. MAVEBA takes place every two years always in Firenze, Italy.
