Proposal for Presentation

Teachers all over the world use their voices daily. According to the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), in the fall of 2017 over 3.2 million teachers were employed in private or public elementary and secondary schools in the United States (“National Center for Education Statistics,” 2017). Due to the overuse of talking in a school day, K-12 teachers are at a high risk of developing voice disorders. Through a survey, this study will specifically evaluate the relationship between K-12 teachers’ awareness, knowledge and perception of voice risk factors and their Voice-Related Quality of Life (V-RQOL).
