Our pronunciation pattern is a natural part of how we speak and our cultural heritage. It forms a unique part of our identity and allows others to know that we speak more than just one language.
Some individuals experience difficulties in their personal and work life when they feel their accent makes it difficult to be understood due to either differences in pronunciation, sentence structure or writing. They may want to increase their confidence in communicating more clearly (oral and written) in their more recently acquired language. This may help them reach personal, occupational and social goals.
Speech therapy can help individuals, employees and businesses with accent modification needs. Therapy is tailored to unique client needs and may focus on improving speech production, written communication, as well as presentation skills.
