Incidence of hoarseness in school children over a 1 year period

, : Incidence of hoarseness in school children over a 1 year period. Journal of Communication Disorders 7(4): 321-328

Approximately 1500 school-aged children were screened for hoarseness twice within a 3-month time span. Consensus of three judges was used as the final criterion for regarding a child as having a hoarse voice quality. Results indicated that the general incidence of hoarseness was approximately 13%; however, only between 2.4% and 3.4% of the children were regarded as having a clinically significant problem. Incidence of chronic hoarseness was 5%. A year later, speech samples were obtained from 251 children who were hoarse during the first phase of this study and from an identical number of control children who did not exhibit hoarseness in the first phase. Again, a panel of three judges rated the speech samples for hoarseness. Results indicated that the incidence of hoarseness in the experimental group was considerably and significantly higher than in the control group.
