Choice of Treatment

Appears to be influenced by professional discipline

In one study by Allen and associates (1991) Otolaryngologists:

Chose voice therapy for children more often than for adults

For both recent and established nodes

81% also felt voice therapy can “always” or “frequently” be helpful

None reported that it was “rarely” or “never” effective

48% felt that “all” or “most” SLPs are adequately trained to deal with the issue

Only 5% “always refer patients to SLPs

81% ”frequently or occasionally refer children for voice therapy (75% for adults)  

(Allen et al., 1991)
