Presentations and Performances: 10 AM – 5 PM (Barfield Drawing Room)
Free Voice Screenings: 1 PM – 3 PM (White Room)
A voice screening is one way to find out if your voice is or is not healthy. During a voice screening a graduate student clinician who is studying to be a speech-language pathologist will ask you to fill out some forms about how you take care of your voice and how you feel about your voice. The graduate student clinician, under the supervision of the licensed speech-language pathologist, will then ask you to make some sounds, read some sentences, and read a passage out loud. The graduate student clinician will rate how your voice sounds. If the ratings indicate a possible voice problem, the graduate student clinician and speech-language pathologist will provide you with a list of laryngologists (a specialized type of Ear, Nose, and Throat doctor, ENT, who specializes in problems of the voice). The laryngologist can discuss your voice with you further.
