The International Association of Laryngectomees (IAL) is a nonprofit, voluntary organization composed of member clubs and recognized regional organizations. These clubs are generally known as Lost Chord or New Voice clubs. Club membership ranges from 10 to more than 300 laryngectomees. The purpose of the IAL is to assist these local clubs in their efforts toward the total rehabilitation of the laryngectomee. The IAL exchanges ideas and disseminates information to member clubs and to the public, facilitates the formation of new clubs, fosters improvement in laryngectomee programs, and improves the minimum standards for teachers of post-laryngectomy speech. The IAL Voice Institute trains laryngectomees and prospective instructors of speech in an intensive 5-day course that emphasizes speech restoration as the central component to multidisciplinary total rehabilitation. A directory of laryngectomee-experienced speech instructors in the United States is available on the IAL Web site. Some Spanish materials are also available.
