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.

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.

Typical voice disorders diagnosed and managed include:

  • Vocal fold nodules
  • Vocal hyperfunction
  • Vocal fold cysts or polyps
  • Laryngeal papillomas
  • Vocal fold scarring
  • Glottic (vocal fold) and subglottic web
  • Vocal fold paralysis or immobility
  • Vocal fold inflammation due to gastroesophageal reflux/laryngopharyngeal reflux (LPR)
  • Vocal fold dysfunction
  • Muscle tension dysphonia
