Gender-Affirming Voice Program

Crossroads Speech and Occupational Therapy is proud to offer gender-affirming voice therapy programs for individuals of all genders. There are many reasons that an individual may feel their communication does not align with their identity. This program was initiated in response to a growing need in the community for services to address just that. A speech-language pathologist may serve as an active member of a person’s interdisciplinary team.

Due to the deeply personal and individual nature of these services, treatment goals will vary. A SLP will support the person in defining, amplifying, and utilizing their authentic voice. Some of the features of voice and communication that may be addressed in the program include:
  • Fundamental frequency and its perceptual correlate pitch
  • Pitch range
  • Resonance
  • Voice quality
  • Inflection/prosody
  • Intensity
  • Language
  • Vocabulary
  • Articulatory precision
  • Non-verbal communication
  • Conversational style and content

The Gender-Affirming Voice Program at Crossroads Speech and Occupational Therapy addresses total communication with a focus on proper vocal hygiene to help clients achieve their target goals safely and effectively.

For voice therapy and services, please contact us, we serve Chicago, the North Shore, and Northern and Western Suburbs.
