Description: 

The Voice Academy is a self-paced, no-cost website created to help school teachers prevent and self-manage voice disorders, which, unfortunately, are common in the profession. This website features a virtual school where teachers explore topics such as voice production basics, safe classroom acoustics, amplification system use, and the healthy body/healthy voice connection. The website also features an auxiliary curriculum for school-based speech-language pathologists or other advocates to present a 50-minute healthy voice seminar to their teacher colleagues.
