Recovery & Support for Hoarseness in Children

Many children with childhood hoarseness recover quickly after surgery and other treatments. But chronic hoarseness and restrictions on speaking after surgery can affect a child’s ability to communicate. Voice experts at Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital at NYU Langone offer ongoing voice therapy and support to help your child manage hoarseness. These child and family support services and resilience programs are provided by Sala Institute for Child and Family Centered Care.

Treatment for Other Causes of Hoarseness

Hoarseness may be caused by a variety of medical conditions, including vocal spasms related to neuromuscular conditions, allergies, and snoring due to sleep apnea. Our voice experts can refer you to specialists who can treat these conditions while your child continues voice therapy.

Emotional Support

Having a raspy, hoarse voice can be an obstacle for a child or adolescent who doesn’t want to stand out, especially when talking in the classroom or with friends. Psychologists at Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital can offer your child counseling and advice to cope with hoarseness and to improve self-esteem. They can also work with your child to accept the unique qualities of his or her voice.
