Reply To: High pitched voice in 10 year old

Hi Rachel
I agree with Liz. Videostroboscopy in a voice clinic ideally. At 10 she should be able to tolerate the scope for this. Could possibly be linked with juvenile arthritis. Scoping will indicate how the whole larynx and vocal cords are moving. Interesting she can achieve a fuller range of pitch when promoted in speaking and singing. So if anything structural is ruled out taking a full voice and psychosocial history will be important. There could be a psychological element to it. Might need a voice therapist to treat…I’m working online and could take on if you’re looking to transfer her care. Interesting case.
