Abstract

The European Laryngological Society (ELS) recommend that functional assessment of voice disorder in adults requires evaluation of a number of different parameters. The current paper presents a discussion of four of the five parameters highlighted in the ELS protocol: perceptual evaluation of voice, videostroboscopic examination, evaluation of aerodynamic performance in voice, and acoustic analysis. Subjective rating of voice in children is explored in a companion paper. These parameters have been extensively evaluated in adults, and a review of the literature pertaining to the paediatric population is presented.
