||This study concerns the professional use of voice by teachers for establishing the relationship between vocal health and speech dysfunction (dysphonias), conditions of work and quality of life of the teacher. These relationships are presented based on the analysis of the most common types of dysfunction and the predisposing factors and aggravating circumstances present in the teacher's routine. This paper provides guidance to health professionals by pointing out the specific needs of teachers and that vocal problems and dysfunctions must be taken into consideration and treated as a disease.
