Speech Therapy Has a Role in Transgender Transition

The main goal of speech therapy for a transitioning individual is to alter one's speech to better represent his/her new sense of self. Speech is not something people generally think about, but it can be a significant aspect in defining one's self. Our voice plays a huge role in how we see ourselves and how we present ourselves to others.
