Auditory perception in essence is the sense of hearing applied to assessment of the voice. In some locations this refers primarily to characteristics of the patient’s spontaneous speaking voice, and sometimes very basic additional [intlink id=”157″ type=”post”]elicitations[/intlink]. In clinics where the [intlink id=”245″ type=”post”]integrative diagnostic model[/intlink] has been mastered, the clinician’s auditory perception has been informed by extensive knowledge and experience of normal and abnormal [intlink id=”627″ type=”post”]vocal capabilities[/intlink] and [intlink id=”650″ type=”post”]vocal limitations[/intlink]. This knowledge, along with his or her own voice used for [intlink id=”353″ type=”post”]modeling[/intlink] and [intlink id=”157″ type=”post”]elicitation[/intlink], are the tools used during vocal capability battery administration. It is [intlink id=”45″ type=”post”]auditory perceptual evaluation[/intlink] of [intlink id=”157″ type=”post”]elicited vocalizations[/intlink] at the extremes of normal capability that provide powerful diagnostic information about the voice, as distinct from the larynx.
