What are the goals of gender affirming speech therapy?
What techniques are commonly used in gender affirming voice therapy?
Commonly, gender affirming voice speech therapy involves voice feminization or masculinization. Voice feminization involves modifying the voice in order to sound more feminine, while voice masculinization involves modifying the voice in order to sound more masculine. Exercises are designed to help the individual adjust their pitch, resonance, and speech patterns in order to create a more gender-appropriate voice.
Transitioning can be a challenging and emotional process, and having access to supportive resources can be an important part of the journey. Many speech-language pathologists who provide gender affirming voice speech therapy also have experience working with transgender and non-binary individuals and can provide a safe and supportive environment for their clients
Is gender affirming voice speech therapy necessary for all transgender or non-binary individuals?
