Join us for a virtual meeting on Wednesday, August 25, at 6:30 ET, to learn more about current voice research being done at the STEPP LAB. Our speaker will be Anton Dolling (pictured left) who is the Research Coordinator and Manager of the Stepp Lab for Sensorimotor Rehabilitation Engineering at Boston University.
Clinical assessments and treatments for voice disorders continue to evolve as our understanding of these sensorimotor disorders grows. Researchers at the Stepp Lab collect acoustic and physiological information to better understand how different conditions affect these sensorimotor functions, and thereby help to inform clinicians’ methods of treatment and improve the clinical care offered to patients.
Anyone who is interested in learning more about how research can help improve the care offered to people who have a voice disorder, or who would like to learn how to become involved in research, is encouraged to attend this talk! You don’t have to have any disorder to get involved.
In addition, there will be time after the presentation to talk and share your own experiences with living with a voice disorder. You will hear how people cope, gain new information, and establish contacts. Discussions can be informative for the newly diagnosed as well as those who have been dealing with spasmodic dysphonia or other related voice conditions for many years.
