  1. I am trying to help a friend with a serious voice problem. She would be in her mid sixties.
    Can you make contact with your organisation a lot easier? Tweets and blogs are not much in the realm of older people. A web page with just pictures and random information is not much immediate help. I would like to talk to someone in the ADN – could you help with this.
    it would be much appreciated. In the meantime, my email is
    Thank you.


    1. Hi Camille – we are a relatively new and small charity … growing in response to need. We have a support discussion group – hosted through facebook (Dysphonia- Lets talk about it) and many people use that as a place to connect physically with those in their geographic location.
      If that doesn’t suit, then you or your friend are very welcome to email us at with specific needs or questions. I hope that helps.


    1. Hi Lori – perhaps you could ask someone to record a brief message saying something like. “If I don’t answer your call, please send me a brief text message and I will be sure to reply”
      Similarly you could use a ‘text to talk’ app to record the message for you.
      You can reveal as much or as little as you like about your voice.
