Why is voice care so important?
Children’s vocal cords are small and very delicate and can be at risk of wear and tear.
When children talk, their vocal cords vibrate (wobble together) about 300 times per second.
If this vibration is strained it may cause the vocal cords to become sore or irritated.
If this strain continues over a period of time, it becomes difficult for the vocal cords to recover and this may then have an impact on the quality of your child’s voice. When the voice quality becomes hoarse, weak, breathy or strained for a prolonged period, this is called dysphonia.
