The research utilized correlational method. Participants were nine (9) 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 chosen using purposive sampling. The Vocal Demand and Vocal Care Survey Questionnaire was administered to the participants to identify their vocal care habits and their Vocal Handicap Index (VHI-10). The data obtained was analyzed using frequency, percentage, mean, Spearman Rho, p-value and phi-coefficient to determine the statistical relationship of the VHI-10 results and the vocal care habits, demographic characteristics and vocal demand of the participants. Results revealed no significant correlation of the VHI-10 and the vocal care habits, lifestyle, and demographic data of the participants.
