Modeling (during vocal capability battery)

This term is used to indicate the process of clinician production of a sound that the patient is then asked to imitate or attempt to imitate. Not unlike “call and response” in some kinds of vocal music. The response is then judged to answer the examiner’s inner questions: “What does this voice do that it shouldn’t and what can’t it do that it should be able to do?” Modeling is performed by the clinician to elicit the voice’s phenomenology.
