The Voice Research Laboratory is a fully equipped voice analysis facility within the Communication Disorders Treatment and Research Clinic (CDTRC) at the Cumberland Campus.
Our research focuses on accurately measuring the effects of speech pathology interventions and training on the human voice.
By understanding voice production, disorders and motor learning process that facilitate permanent vocal change, we aim to develop the most effective and efficient voice therapy and training programs.
Our lab is fully equipped for simultaneous visual imaging, respiratory, laryngeal and acoustic measurement.
Our Voice Clinic is a teaching and research facility that provides voice assessments.
Your voice will first be evaluated by speech pathology students under the supervision of qualified speech pathologists, using computerised voice analysis systems. When necessary, direct assessments of your vocal fold function can be conducted by an ear, nose and throat specialist.
Please note that recording equipment is used for teaching and supervisory purposes.
A GP referral is required to attend the clinic. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 9351 9764 to make an appointment.
Voice intensive clinics offer 1.5 to 2-hour voice therapy sessions based on the needs of the client. The sessions take place three days a week over four consecutive weeks during the semester breaks.
Sessions are run by paired students who have completed necessary training supervised by a speech pathology clinical educator. Clients are then followed up with a comprehensive examination with Dr Daniel Novakovic.
If you are interested in voice therapy, please contact the clinic on 9351 9539.
The lab team includes PhD, masters by research and honours undergraduate students.
