AbstractThis study examined employer perceptions of a speaker with spasmodic dysphonia during a simulated telephone interview. Employers made judgments in one of two conditions: a) pre-BOTOX/severe, and b) post-BOTOX/mild. Results showed that unique concerns emerged for the applicant in the severe condition. Implications for disclosure during hiring will be discussed.
