The Voice & Velopharyngeal Dysfunction Center at Boston Children's Hospital is a subspecialty clinic in the Department of Otolaryngology and Communication Enhancement, and is closely associated with the Center for Airway Disorders. Our clinic meets on Mondays at Boston Children's at Waltham, 9 Hope Avenue, Waltham MA.


Our expertise

We fully evaluate children with voice disorders and/or disorders of the velopharyngeal closure. After making an accurate diagnosis, recommendations are made for management of the problem, which may include voice/speech therapy, medical treatment, as well as surgical intervention. We communicate regularly with your referring physician and/or your speech clinician.

Acoustic measurements

Children's will obtain an acoustic measurement, or digital recording, of your child's voice, which allows for interpretation of fundamental frequency, range, loudness, and other characteristics.

Performing and voice disorders

Is your child a performer? Voice disorders, such as hoarseness, are especially common in child performers.
