Transgender Voice Services

Transgender voice services are designed on an individual basis for persons undergoing transition. Both transwoman and transman clients are provided with tools to aid in the voice transition portion of gender reassignment. Specifically, we strive to maximize total communication, including aspects of voice such as conversational pitch, inflection, as well as nonverbal communication.

The initial evaluation will include a case history and the assessment of voice and speech prosody. All clients are initially screened for any laryngeal pathology and to ensure optimal vocal fold health.

Individualized treatment planning is created based on the needs of the client. Some possible aspects the voice pathologist may choose to address include:

  • habitual speaking pitch 
  • resonance
  • inflection (the melodic ups and downs of the voice)
  • rate of speech (how fast or slow the person speaks)
  • volume/intensity
  • articulation
  • prosody
  • pragmatics (social rules of communication)

Additional resources may be found at the American Speech Language Hearing Association (ASHA) website.
