Achieving Authentic Voices: Voice Modification for People in the Transgender Community

NYU’s online master’s program in Communicative Sciences and Disorders is making an effort to raise public awareness of the importance of healthy voice modification within the transgender community.

According to their experts, working with a Speech-Language Pathologist lowers the risk of damage to the voice when following a do-it-yourself program without guidance from a professional. Attempting the process independently may lead to using their voice ineffectively, pushing – trying to make a sound that their instrument can’t make.

NYU Steinhardt’s Speech-Language-Hearing Clinic put together a piece entitled Achieving Authentic Voices: Voice Modification for People in the Transgender Community, which discusses finding an authentic voice in a safe and healthy way.
