ABSTRACT
Background and Objectives : The purpose of the present study is to investigate the effect of vocal hygiene education for the female elementary school teachers. Materials and Method : Thirty healthy female elementary school teachers were enrolled for the study. We provided a vocal hygiene education to the half of them. Voice handicap index and acoustic parameters were measured before and 4 week after the education. The efficacy of vocal hygiene education was analyzed by Wilcoxon Signed-rank test. Results : The vocal hygiene group showed significant improvement both in the subjective and objective data after the education. However, the non-vocal hygiene group failed to show any improvement. In functional score, emotional score, jitter, shimmer, only Junior Class(JC) could find significant after the education. Only low career(LC) could find significant in subjective data. Conclusion : Vocal hygiene education may be useful in reducing vocal misuse and abuse associated with teaching, and can be an effective method to maintain and improve the vocal health of teachers.
KEY WORDS: Vocal hygiene;School teachers;Acoustic analysis;Voice handicap index;
