This text provides students and clinicians with a strong foundation of basic voice science infused with a deep clinical understanding of the best methods for assessing and treating voice disorders.

Thoroughly revised with two new chapters and more multimedia, the seventh edition of Clinical Voice Pathology: Theory and Management is an essential resource for students and clinicians. This textbook addresses the changes in societal, professional, and educational environments impacting the field of speech-language pathology, utilizing technology for enhanced teaching and learning methods. It covers the history, anatomy, physiology, etiologies, pathologies, and diagnostic processes related to voice disorders, providing comprehensive knowledge for evaluation and treatment. Now including new chapters that focus on the role of speech-language pathologists in upper airway disorders and gender-affirming voice care, this text will expand the scope of clinical practice in voice pathology. With a foundation rooted in voice science and clinical expertise, students and practicing clinicians will be equipped with the essential knowledge and skills to effectively evaluate and treat a range of voice disorders. 

The challenges faced by individuals with various voice-related issues, such as voice users, performers, cancer patients, and those experiencing voice changes will need a unique diagnostic situation. A comprehensive understanding of voice disorders will assist in determining the most effective treatment for restoring optimal voice function. 

This text offers a wealth of visual aids, including artwork, case studies, and a companion website with additional instructional materials, all presented in full color. These features not only maintain the high standards set by previous editions but also enhance the learning experience.
