Transgender Voice/Communication Therapy

Transgender voice and communication therapy helps establish voice, speech, and language that is reflective of each individual's identified gender. Clinic services begin with a comprehensive speech, voice and language evaluation that allows a customized therapy plan to be created for each client. Areas of focus include:

  • Pitch
  • Intonation and stress patterns
  • Breath support
  • Resonance
  • Volume and intensity
  • Articulation
  • Speaking rate
  • Language
  • Pragmatics
  • Vocal health


The Northwestern University Center for Audiology, Speech, Language, and Learning provides comprehensive evaluation and therapy services on the Evanston campus. Diagnostic evaluations determine the course of treatment, including frequency and appropriateness of individual and/or group therapy.

In addition to services for youth and adults at the Northwestern University Center for Audiology, Speech, Language, and Learning in Evanston, a Youth and Young Adults Voice and Communication Group [pdf] is available in Chicago through a partnership with Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago’s Gender & Sex Development Program.

The Northwestern University Center for Audiology, Speech, Language, and Learning is a unique community resource that merges university research and innovative teaching with clinical services.
