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.
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.
