The Voice & Velopharyngeal Dysfunction Program at Boston Children's Hospital is a sub specialty 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.
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.
Is your child a performer? Voice disorders, such as hoarseness, are especially common in child performers.
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.”
