This case report describes the procedures employed and problems encountered in a vocal rehabilitation program for a man 48-yr-old with a 3-yr history of functional aphonia. Results suggest that the speech pathologist, using a combination of voice and behavior therapy techniques, can successfully treat the patient with functional aphonia. The patient exhibited a normal voice at the end of a 30-session program and at 2 and 6 months' follow-ups.
