Abstract

The research design that this study utilized was correlational research. Purposive sampling is used as the needed participants are speech-language pathology and occupational therapy educators with private clinical practice in the field of pediatrics from the De La Salle Medical and Health Sciences Institute. This study involved nine (9) participants. The Vocal Demand and Vocal Care Survey Questionnaire was given to the participants to identify their vocal care habits and their Vocal Handicap Index (VHI-10). The tool was validated by three Certified Speech-Language Pathologists who specializes in the field of voice. The data obtained was analyzed using descriptive statistics and a non-parametric statistical treatment to determine the statistical relationship of the VHI-10 results and the vocal care habits, demographic characteristics and vocal demand of the participants. There were frequency, percentage, mean, Spearman Rho, p-value and phi-coefficient. Results revealed no significant correlation of the VHI-10 and the vocal care habits, lifestyle, and demographic data of the participants.
