The relationship between posture and speech is well recognised. Changes in posture have a direct impact on vocal performance and patients with dysphonia often present with specific postural dysfunctions. If these postural anomalies and associated muscular compensations are not addressed, singers may have ongoing issues with their performance. This course, therefore, provides an in-depth discussion of posture and specific principles that can be used to manage postural dysfunction.


The aim of this course is to provide you with an understanding of normal posture and common postural dysfunctions. It also introduces postural approaches that may be beneficial for speech therapists.


This course is made up of videos, reading, discussions and a final quiz. The course content is split into the following sections:

  1. Videos
  2. Reading activity
  3. Quiz

Target audience

This course is aimed at Speech and Language Therapists, Physiotherapy and Physical Therapy clinicians, students and assistants. Other interested professionals such as athletic trainers, occupational therapists, nurses or medical doctors interested in this subject are also invited to participate.
