Speech Therapy Session


Grow Your Voice offers elective speech training services for non-native English speakers. This service is intended for those interested in improving their speech clarity in workplace and/or social situations. Types of training goals include, but are not limited to, accent modification, increasing professional vocabulary, understanding and using idioms/expressions, using North American stress and intonation patterns, as well as strategies to mitigate anxiety and increase confidence when speaking in English. 

Accent Modification is a form of speech training in which non-native English clients practice changing the way they produce certain speech sounds and patterns. Often the main goal for the client is to improve how well they are understood in their workplace, and can be especially beneficial for interviews or when taking on a new professional role that involves increased verbal communication. 

Terms such as "accent reduction" or "accent elimination" are inaccurate terms for this type of training, as everyone has an accent and will continue to have an accent even if it is modified. It is nearly impossible to adopt a completely native sounding North American accent beyond childhood years; however, it is highly possible to make certain strategic communication modifications that can greatly improve how well one is understood by North American listeners while still maintaining a different accent.
