You are invited to a virtual session of the New York City Spasmodic Dysphonia Support Group.
We are also excited to welcome our Guest Speaker, Christie DeLuca, MS, CCC-SLP.Christie is a speech language pathologist and clinical voice specialist working at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in the Voice Program.
Many people are currently experiencing increased voice demands right now with the current COVID-19 pandemic, including projecting through masks, speaking to others at a distance, voicing through a face shield or talking through virtual means. These can all add an increased level of challenge to anyone without a voice disorder, but particularly to those with spasmodic dysphonia or related voice disorders.
So what can we do? We don’t have to struggle! There are ways to make voicing easier in these situations, including proper vocal hygiene; use of healthy projection and efficient voicing strategies; and external aids like voice amplifiers. We’ll discuss and try some voice therapy techniques to address and decrease difficulty projecting or being heard; vocal strain or tension; throat discomfort when speaking; severity of breaks when speaking; and impaired clarity of speech. I will discuss, demonstrate and lead you through trying helpful “tricks” and tips for speaking on the phone, speaking in virtual meetings, and projecting your voice without effort through potential barriers or when at a distance.
Joining is easy!
You’ll receive a confirmation email containing a link to join the meeting at its scheduled time.

“We don’t yet see things clearly. We are squinting in a fog, peering through a mist. But it won’t be long before the weather clears and the sun shines bright! We’ll see it all then, see it all as clearly as God sees us, knowing Him directly just as He knows us!”
— 1 Corinthians 13:12
We Love You Always Dan!
