Vocal iPad-Corrective Exercise (VOICE) Study
We are collaborating with Dr. Aaron Johnson (Speech & Hearing Sciences) to conduct this pilot study, funded by the Center on Health, Aging, and Disability (CHAD) at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
The primary aim of this study is to test the effects of a novel, 8-week iPad training (with and without feedback) on vocal functioning, adherence to vocal exercise, and acceptability of the program in a sample of independently-living older adults. Secondary aims are to explore the effects of vocal exercise training on psychosocial stress.
The trial has ended. Stay tuned for published results.
