Abstract
This seminar provides an overview of the Americans with Disabilities Act as applied to individuals with voice disorders. Workplace productivity is examined using a concept known as presenteeism. Preliminary interviews with individuals with spasmodic dysphonia reveal whether existing scales that measure presenteeism might be useful for those with voice disorders.
