The research used quantitative descriptive design aimed to construct a comprehensive Tagalog self-reported voice complaint questionnaire for teachers that incorporated the concept of the World Health Organization's International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF). The questionnaire was constructed based on existing voice assessment tools, voice research literature, and researcher-formulated questions. Participants were selected using purposive sampling technique, who were a linguist and four (4) voice experts. Quantitative data was analyzed using the Content Validity Index (CVI). The study concluded that the 62-item questionnaire developed was deemed valid in terms of content by the voice experts. The tool cannot be used yet for clinical practice however, it provided a head start for tool development and initial content validation of a voice assessment tool custom-made for teachers. Further psychometric evaluation needs to be performed for this tool to produce guaranteed valid and reliable results. Future applications of this tool will benefit patient health, service delivery, and government policy-making.
