Vocal Cord Dysfunction Questionnaire (VCD-Q)

This questionnaire was developed to help monitor symptoms in clients with a diagnosis of Vocal Cord Dysfunction, or PVFM. These are statements many people have used to describe their breathing symptoms and the effects of these symptoms on their lives. Please select the response that indicates how much you agree with each statement.

1 = Strongly disagree
2 = Disagree
3 = Neither agree or disagree

4 = Agree
5 = Strongly agree

The results of these questions will be sent to your Speech Pathologist who will discuss them with you at your next appointment.
