Voice production is a complicated blend of the respiratory driving force, the highly complex laryngeal muscular interactions, and the placement of the tones in the resonatory system. When these physiologic happenings are combined with the behavioral aspects of human actions and interactions, the voice, unique to each individual, results. Considering the multitude of behaviors, medical conditions, and psychosocial influences that may affect voice production, it is a tribute to the wonderful resilience of this system that it remains healthy and functional for most individuals. Because voice production is so closely associated with personality, emotions, and the manner in which we are perceived by others, a disorder in production may have profound effects on personal, social, and educational development.
