Abstract

Objectives: Cepstral measures have mainly been evaluated by studies conducted on dysphonic and healthy adults, and many of these studies have reported the advantages of using cepstral measures for the evaluation of dysphonia however there is a paucity regarding to the cepstral analyses' results in dysphonic children. In this present study, it is hypothesized that cepstral peak prominence (CPP) and some other parameters of cepstral analysis would differ in children with vocal nodules when compared with the same parameters of cepstral analysis of healthy children.
