Voice/Communication Training for Transgender/Gender Nonconforming (GNC) Individuals

Some transgender/GNC individuals wish to alter their voice to better reflect their identities, which can be achieved through voice/communication training with a speech-language pathologist. Several CHAT employees received specialized training in providing this service, which focuses on altering aspects of voice such as pitch, resonance, intonation, rate, and volume. We work towards ensuring that the specific combination of speech, language, and voice features in a client’s voice both reflects their identity and preserves their vocal health by avoiding tension or strain.
