From New Zealand to Toronto - Adductor Spasmodic Dysphonia Case - Progress Report!
Upon completion of 50 hours of instruction and treatment, we would like to bring to your attention a testimonial, provided to us by Tanya G - Adductor Spasmodic Dysphonia voice disorder sufferer from New Zealand.
This testimonial contains a dialogue between Diana Yampolsky and Tanya.
- Please see below -
Tanya: My name is Tanya G and I had been diagnosed with the Adductor Spasmodic Dysphonia voice disorder.
I came all the way from New Zealand, which took 26 hours to fly to Toronto. As of today, I had done 50 hours of instruction for my voice recovery and the process of it has been very difficult, to say the least. But I have gotten the “tools” to go home with to work hard and bring my voice to where I want it to be.
Diana: Was it worth the flight?
Tanya: Yes, it definitely was.
Diana: - However, your expectations were for a full recovery within those 50 hours; as you understand now yourself, it was not possible to achieve the full voice recovery in such a short period of time and within only 10 days.
Tanya: Yes, I understand. It is hard work.
Diana: But with regards to what has been done and to the route we took, can you see the "light at the end of the tunnel”?
Tanya: Yes, I understand that at “the end of the tunnel”, I will be able to recover my voice.
Diana: So, in other words, to be continued as, no doubt, the essential part of laying the foundation for the full voice recovery has been completed.
In the interim, the next thing to do will be to practice at home with those “tools” (knowledge and experience) you have received during your stay with us.
Nonetheless, if it becomes possible, it would be very beneficial for you to revisit us for part 2 for your more advanced voice instruction and treatment in order to complete your full voice restoration.
Tanya: Thank you, Diana.
Stay tuned for more detailed information which will shed more light on the process of voice recovery for the above-described disorder.
