I hope that as people become more educated about movement disorders, these conditions will be diagnosed and treated appropriately and quickly." Spasmodic dysphonia is a type of focal dystonia that affects more than 50,000 people in North America, and is characterized by involuntary "spasms" of the vocal cords causing interruptions of speech and affecting the voice quality.

The Life in Motion Movement Disorders Experience Center provides participants with restraining devices, vibrating apparatuses and other tools that simulate daily challenges associated with movement disorders.
