Adults who seek speech therapy services for accent reduction or modification do so for different reasons. Some clients seek accent reduction therapy through a speech therapist so they can be better understood by other people. Others may do so because they may want to learn how to communicate in a more professional sounding manner. Some clients say they just want to sound different.
A strong accent can in some cases be confusing or distracting for an unfamiliar listener. Accent related speech differences can stem from consonant or vowel sounds that are being articulated differently, consonants, sound sequences or syllables that are being omitted, or consonant and vowel sounds that are being substituted with other speech sounds from one's native language. Differences in word stress, prosody and intonation are also apparent among people who speak with a different accent. Our comprehensive accent reduction therapy programs at are individually tailored for each client.
Accent reduction therapy starts with an initial assessment where the speech therapist will evaluate an individual's accent to identify accent related speech errors and differences that can be targeted in therapy. During accent reduction or accent modification therapy, the individual will be taught how to use their tongue, lips, vocal cords and jaw to produce the sounds and sound sequences used in Canadian English. Focus will also be given to word stress, prosody and intonation. Our speech therapists work with clients from a variety of language backgrounds including but not limited to: Cantonese, Russian, Hindi, Japanese, Mandarin, Vietnamese, Punjabi, Spanish, Urdu, Ukranian, Serbian, French and Gujrati.
