Adolescents make up a unique population that can be a challenge for the speech-language pathologist. An understanding of the vocal behavior of the adolescent requires knowledge of physiological changes, psychosocial development changes, as well as family interaction patterns as they influence vocal behavior. This paper presents an approach to voice therapy with the adolescent. Emphasis is placed on the importance of psychosocial and family influences as they relate to vocal behavior in this population.
