Abstract

The field of communicative disorders is still a relatively young one. Speech and language are extremely complex processes, which are not yet fully understood. But, as the rest of science and technology is advancing by leaps and bounds, so is the study of these complex processes. New technology makes the researcher's job easier, as well as the clinician's. This paper will highlight just a few of the many advantages that one major technological advancement - the computer - provides for the field of Speech Pathology. Before computer's contributions can be examined, however, it is imperative to come to a basic understanding of normal phonation, various voice disorders, and prevalent treatment modalities.
