Minnesota Voice & Speech Clinic
Minnesota Voice & Speech Clinic

MINNESOTA VOICE & SPEECH CLINIC is a specialty speech therapy practice for clients age teenage through 64.  Bob Grider is the owner and sole provider for Minnesota Voice & Speech.

 

Clients see Bob by telepractice for evaluation and therapy for voice, speech, and orofacial myofunctional problems.  Bob's clients must be located in the state of Minnesota due to state licensure requirements.

 

Many clients are referred by a physician or medical practitioner.  Often clients are self-referred or recommended by family or other care givers.

 

  • Voice Disorders: Medical voice problems such as vocal nodules, vocal polyps, muscle tension dysphonia, recurring voice roughness.  Clients should be seen by an otolaryngologist (ear, nose & throat physician) for examination prior to voice evaluation and therapy.

 

  • Motor Speech Articulation Disorders / Concerns:  Clarity of speech.

 

  • Myofunctional Disorders: Oral functional disorders involving normal oral resting posture, oral stage swallowing, and speech articulation.  May be identified by client's dentist or orthodontist.  Can present as recurring choking, face and jaw pain or other oral symptoms that do not seem to have a clear underlying pathology.

 

  • Fluency Disorders (stuttering, blocking, stammering):  These disorders may arise in early childhood or early school age.  While no "cure" has been developed, therapy can be effective in helping to facilitate ease of communication, reduce speaking stress, and help to develop understanding within the family and peer group. Teen and adult clients see Bob for fluency disorders.

 

  • Teenage Speech Disorders.  Most often these are problems that were not addressed by or did not respond well to speech therapy at a younger age.  As communication needs change in this pre-adult stage, teenagers with speech clarity difficulty can often encounter problems with family and peers.

 

  • Functional Breathing Disorders / Vocal Cord Dysfunction:  These clients are referred by physician or specialist for difficult breathing problems that are functional in nature.
