Pediatric Voice Program
Voice problems and voice disorders in children can have an emotional impact and can affect social development, scholastic performance and self-esteem. At the Pediatric Voice Program, we offer evaluation and treatment for children and adolescents who have complex voice problems. If your child is at least 3 years old and has a voice problem — such as vocal cord paralysis, chronic laryngitis, or a functional voice disorder — she may be a candidate for care through this program. Our goal is to create a nurturing environment for children and their families prior to, during and after each visit to our clinic.
The Voice Program at CHOP is the only multidisciplinary pediatric clinic serving the greater Philadelphia area, and one of only a few programs nationwide that is dedicated to the comprehensive voice treatment for children.
