Speech Therapy -> Voice -> Transgender Voice and Communication

Transgender Voice and Communication

In addition to providing services to help with an individual's laugh, cough, and all aspects of voice (intonation, pitch, quality, and resonance), an SLP will also provide guidance on pragmatics while demonstrating cultural sensitivity in communication with the clients and their families. An SLP is well-versed in inclusive, respectful, and non-pathologizing terminology.
