People with voice disorders and their problems are always at the centre of attention of several sciences, in particular medicine, pedagogy, psychology, and sociology.

The use of quantitative procedures in this paper is mainly ready to lend a hand in sorting out some of the significant issues surrounding speech therapy intervention in both clinical and research contexts. 

After the removal of the throat, the patient, having the means of communication - the word, but losing one of the components of expressive speech - the voice, has pronounced difficulties in the process of communication. Some patients, realizing their inadequacy due to absence of voice, try to take various measures to overcome the problem, while others become discouraged, frustrated, lose optimism, the desire to overcome the problem and return to a full life. Patients, within the frame of this study, had certain prerequisites for vocal cords, such as verbal breathing and expressive mobility problems.
