The Eckelmann-Taylor Speech and Hearing clinic is proud to provide voice and communication services for individuals who identify as transgender. Speech-language pathologists and graduate student clinicians work with clients to achieve their individual voice and communication goals. Therapy may focus on helping individuals find and maintain their desired vocal pitch and quality in a safe and healthy way, and modify articulation, rate of speech, and gestures to best represent their authentic self. Both individual and group sessions are offered at our clinic to provide clients with efficacious and comprehensive care.
Why do people seek services from a speech-language pathologist?
For transgender individuals, each step in the transitional process brings the person closer to the goal of having an outward appearance match their inner identity. For some, this can feel like a struggle with every word spoken.
