Transgender and Transexual Voice Modification Program
Lakeshore Speech is proud to offer transgender voice modification and transexual voice therapy programs for individuals in the transgender/transsexual community, focusing on enhancing communication for male-to-female (MtF) clients. The program was initiated in response to a growing need for such services in our community. A Speech Language Pathologist serves as an active team member of the entire TG/TS team, which includes physicians, psychologists, social workers and other professionals.
Some of the features of voice and communication that influence gender identification and are addressed in the program include:
Fundamental frequency and its perceptual correlate pitch
Non verbal communication
Conversational style and content
