Voice Training

If you're looking to train, optimize, or enhance your voice to a new ideal, our experienced voice-focused speech-language pathologists are here to help!

Perhaps you're finding your voice doesn't command attention and authority, or convey warmth and empathy. You may be finding that after a meeting or a call, your voice tires quickly and the sound quality is reduced. You might be looking to style a more professional-sounding voice, one that doesn't use a question-like inflection at the ends of sentences or one that isn't laden with heavy vocal fry and crackling.  

Professional voice users in particular (such as teachers, singers, lawyers, athletic and fitness trainers and coaches, podcasters and streamers, and even parents) rely heavily on their voices. With such intense voice demands, their voice may give out more often.

Whether you're a professional voice user or you're simply hoping to develop more confidence in using your voice, Voice Training may be for you. 

Common goals for Voice Training include:

  • Developing vocal impact and engagement (voice sounds dull or passive)

  • Improving your voice projection (you are finding it difficult to project or be heard)

  • Accessing a richer, clearer or fuller vocal tone

  • Improving your vocal consistency (reducing voice cracks or breaks)

  • Improving your vocal stamina (voice gets tired quickly after speaking)

  • Learning to care for your voice and preventing vocal injury

  • Developing a more professional-sounding voice (reducing less efficient vocal patterns like pervasive vocal fry and up-speak)

  • Onboarding tools to access a more confident-sounding voice in stressful situations

Voice FAQ's 

Do I need a referral?

No, you can simply book yourself in. Your Speech-Language Pathologist and Voice Therapist will help determine if Voice Therapy is appropriate for you. If you haven't already seen an ENT, you may be asked to see an ENT for examination as their evaluation and recommendations guide your clinician in selecting the most effective voice rehabilitation plan.

Is Voice Therapy covered by insurance?

As all of our clinicians at SpeechAppeal are registered Speech-Language Pathologists, services you receive are eligible for third-party or private insurance coverage. Please check with your provider on budgets and requirements as this information is not available to us. 

How long will it take?

The duration of programs range vastly and depend on many factors. In many cases, we recommend starting with an initial foundation trial of 4 weekly or bi-weekly sessions. Some programs may require 8 to 12 sessions.  

Will I be assigned exercises?

Yes! Exercises to maximize vocal healing, coordinate voice-breath, increase the ease and stamina of using your voice, and prevent further vocal injury will be assigned to you in sessions. 

Do all Speech-Language Pathologists Treat Voice Disorders?

No! Speech-Language Pathologists who work in Voice have received extensive and specialized clinical training in the Voice area.
