Abstract

Young children are more amenable to awake laryngoscopic evaluation than previously considered. A high success rate (74%) in our clinic attests to this. Girls appear to present in our clinic with vocal fold nodules at a younger age than boys and this observation requires further investigation to establish referral patterns by gender. This is especially important given that girls may have persisting difficulties as a result of vocal fold nodules as they mature. Vocal fold nodules continue to be the predominant diagnosis as previously reported. Systematic research is required for efficacy of Speech and Language Therapy intervention in this population.
