The Voice & Velopharyngeal Dysfunction Center at Boston Children's Hospital is a subspecialty clinic in the Department of Otolaryngology and Communication Enhancement.
Voice disorders in children are commonly referred to with descriptive terms such as "hoarseness", "raspy voice" and "weak and breathy voice." A child's voice disorder
may significantly impair a child's intelligibility, either by itself or in combination with a speech and articulation difficulty. We fully evaluate children with voice disorders and/or disorders of the velopharyngeal closure.
Is your child a performer? Voice disorders, such as hoarseness, are especially common in child performers. Accurate evaluation and diagnosis is key in managing problems while preserving the voice. Obtaining a baseline examination is also important, particularly in children with professional voice aspirations. Child and teenage performers may place special demands on their voices, and be unable to reach their full potential in the setting of a voice problem.
We are grateful to have been ranked #1 on U.S. News & World Report's list of the best children's hospitals in the nation for the third year in a row, an honor we could not have achieved without the patients and families who inspire us to do our very best for them. Thanks to you, Boston Children's is a place where we can write the greatest children's stories ever told.”
