FAQs about our Voice Therapy Programs

Check below if you have any questions! If you’re feeling confused, don’t worry. You can find Sarah via the chat box at the right of the screen if you’ve got questions or else call our helpful receptionists.

1. Do I need to have a medical voice diagnosis to do a Diagnostic Voice Assessment?

No, not necessarily. Although we work with clients who need voice therapy owing to a diagnosis they are aware of, we also assist anyone who is struggling with voice concerns.

If you’re core concern is about your voice function, comfort and health this Vocal Health Audit is the best Audit for you.

If you’re wanting to work on the cosmetic sound of your voice for presenting and workplace communication, we recommend you check out our High-Performance Communication Audit, as it is better suited for you.

2. What Voice Conditions do you Treat?

We’re qualified to assist with a range of voice diagnoses.

  • Poor voice projection, low volume

  • Voice fatigue and voice loss
  • Vocal fold paralysis

3. Who will assist me in the Voice Therapy / Voice Coaching Sessions after I complete my Voice Tone Test?

Your program will be overseen by our chief speech pathologist, Sarah Lobegeiger de Rodriguez.

Across the course of your program, you may have some specific sessions allocated by Sarah to another team member, however, your overall course structure will be mapped out by Sarah from your initial consultation.

Program sessions will then be delivered by our team of speech pathologists with extensive experience in voice therapy, voice coaching and communication strategy.

4. If I sign up for a Voice Therapy / Voice Coaching program at Voice Science, how long will it take for me to notice changes and progress in my communication?

Adjusting communication behaviours and patterns of speaking is a process. How long it takes for you to notice change in your general communication depends on a few factors:

1) Your mindset

2) Practice. One of the key predictors of speech change is how effectively and frequently you practice and appraise your communication and voice goals. At Voice Science, we will support you in developing a clear understanding of how to practice. This is one of our key interests for any client who commences training at Voice Science, especially since research evidence supports the impact of regular, drill-based practise on speech and language change outcomes. We will create individual practice goals with you that are strategic.

3) Your voice muscle condition. Depending on the state of your voice muscle when we first conduct your audit, sessions may range between 5 – 15 sessions.

5. Do I need a referral from my General Practitioner to receive these sessions?

A referral is not needed from your doctor to commence at Voice Science,™ but you’re welcome to bring one.

6. Can I receive private health care rebates for these sessions?

Speech Pathology is covered by Private Health funds for diagnosable medical disorders and communication disorders such as stuttering, voice disorders and neurological impairments.

The Vocal Health Audit will identify whether you have a clinical voice condition that would allow us to include the Private health codes on your invoicing.

Our clinicians are registered Australian service providers for Private Health Insurers so we can bill item numbers accordingly if you have private health cover that includes Speech Pathology services. Click this link to learn about REBATES

We recommend you check directly with your private health fund to determine whether you have cover for speech pathology and are based in Australia. You will not be able to receive private health cover if you don’t live in Australia but are very welcome to do one of our programs.

7. Can I receive a Medicare rebate for my Voice Therapy Sessions?

Medicare may be available if you’re based in Australia. To receive a rebate from the first assessment you will need to present 1) GP referral letter 2) A Chronic Disease Management plan created by your GP.

For speech pathology services to be rebatable with private health insurers or medicare, they must be billed according to medical/ chronic speech pathology conditions under specific legal codes. These codes are given under clinical authority and as medical professionals, we must apply codes only in light of a clinical diagnosis. It is up to the clinician’s judgement whether these codes can be applied. Please click this link to learn about REBATES.

8. I really want to use Voice Science for my Voice but I don’t live in Melbourne. What can I do?

We have options! We assist clients all over the world to enhance their communication and voice so don’t let the geographical distance stop you working with our team!

9. I am worried about how to incorporate daily voice practice so that I can achieve my vocal health goals. How will I know how to practice?

We will write goals to improve your practice approach. For most adults, the idea of daily practice can be very foreign. Our team will share their knowledge about practice theory that they have obtained as performers with all clients in order to support their engagement with a practice schedule. It can take some time to develop motivation and routine with practice. This is something that we encourage you to discuss openly and frankly with your speech pathologist so we can assist you to incorporate speech and communication practice into your daily routine.

10. Do you provide group communication training sessions at Voice Science?

No.

For your voice to adjust it is important that you receive training that pivots around your voice diagnosis and needs. This is the reason why we do not offer group-based communication training as every person will have different vocal concerns.

By focusing on individual 1-1 sessions we ensure our training is client-centred, evidence-based and success driven.

*We do deliver workshops for companies under our corporate services. Contact us for more info if you are seeking training for a group of employees.

11. When are Voice Therapy sessions available at Voice Science?

We provide voice therapy / voice coaching during business hours from Mondays to Fridays between 9 am – 5 pm AEST. The last session for each day is a 4pm session.

12. How do online sessions work?

We have worked successfully online with many clients since we started business in 2013. If you are wondering how online sessions work, you should definitely read this article we have written just for you!

13. How Many Sessions Do I Need?

The Vocal Health Audit will investigate and rate your current voice health against your goals and daily needs. This voice assessment protocol will identify your ability to use the following effectively:

  • Voice clarity
  • Voice Flow
  • Respiration, Phonatory Efficiency and Resonance
  • Vocal Hygiene
  • Voice ergonomics, usage requirements and projection needs
  • and so much more!

This information is then used to forecast the number of sessions required to address your communication needs.

We can not provide a fixed number of sessions you’ll need without undertaking the audit. Once you complete your audit, the clinicians will identify a recommendation. You are, of course, welcome to choose the number of sessions that meets your budget/ schedule/ wishes. Clients are usually recommended a variety of options from individual sessions to treatment programs of 5 or more sessions.

We usually recommend between 5 -15 sessions for best outcomes.

14. Are Practice Resources Included?

This is one of our favourite things at Voice Science- equipping our clients with incredible resources to take their goals forward. All voice optimisation program clients receive access to Cadenza- Your Personalised Voice Suite where you will find a massive amount of tools and tips to guide your daily voice therapy needs and goals.

Access relates to the number of sessions you take.

For five sessions, you’ll receive a bonus 5 weeks access, for ten sessions, you’ll receive a bonus 10 weeks access and our fifteen session program clients will obtain 6 months access as a bonus.

Once your access expires you can easily move onto our monthly subscription program for $39 per month to stay connected to the suite.

How do speech pathologists work in the area of Voice?

Speech pathologists study, diagnose and treat communication disorders, including difficulties with voice. They also provide services to modify or enhance communication performance (e.g. preventative voice care)*

According to Speech Pathology Australia, the official registration organisation for Speech Pathologists in Australia, Speech Pathologists often assist in the remediation and prevention of voice disorders among all ages.

Early intervention is the best method, so if you have noticed vocal changes in your singing or speaking voice act fast.

Read more about how speech pathologists deliver voice therapy on this Speech Pathology Australia Fact Sheet About Voice

At Voice Science™ acoustic data is taken to determine a clinical impression of the vibratory behaviour of your vocal folds. Your clinician will also undertake extensive behavioural, perceptual and qualitative outcome measures to ensure that a thorough diagnosis is formed. If necessary, a referral will be made to an Ear, Nose and Throat surgeon to obtain any additional information that might be underlying your voice problem.

We offer discrete voice care and rehabilitation to professional voice users and liaise closely with singing teachers, acting coaches and employers to ensure holistic care, at your request.

Voice Science also offers an after hours on call service for vocal performers.
