Hello everyone! It’s another FUNetic Friday!

There are individuals who have had head and neck cancer with facial loss.

In the SLP field, we may decide to work with people who have facial loss and damage, as this impacts swallowing, speech, and many other qualities of life. A voice language pathologist may help recover and strengthen the voice of the patient.

In this quick 5 minute video, we get to see the awesome technology used to help in this patient’s journey of recovering to an improved sound of speech. What we don’t see, but is a possibility, is to have further support from an SLP.

Enjoy and have a great weekend!
