Treating Vocal Cord Dysfunction can be challenging, especially if you are a speech pathologist who hasn’t had a good base-education on Paradoxical Vocal Fold Motion, or doesn’t see it often on caseload. Harder still, is getting information into your patients’ hands that is succinct and easy to read, backed by research.

Do you have a hodge-podge of handouts from grad school?
