Vocal Cord Disorder...now what?

My fifteen year old has been diagnosed with a 'vocal chord disorder'.  Her breathing is very difficult when exercising and she plays sports.  Has anyone had experiences with treatment that they have found helpful?  An ENT that you found helpful?   Can you recommend a specialist at Kaiser in the east bay?  We have been untangling this knot for a long time and I would love a direct line! 

The current recommendation is to go to a speech pathologist and a respiratory therapist. If anyone has had experience with this route at Kaiser east bay I would really appreciate any information you can share.

It's definitely not asthma so please no asthma advice.
