This is the first comprehensive clinical guide to voice and communication therapy for TG/TS clients. The authors’ goal is to aid clinicians in designing and administering a focused and efficient treatment plan, while providing the clinician with the background on and the complexities of the client’s transition process. Beginning with specific terminology, aspects of ethics and confidentiality, and competence issues, the book outlines theory, research, and practice skills, as well as treatment planning. Each chapter suggests safe, appropriate, evidence-based protocols for working in the areas of pitch, intonation, volume, rate, articulation, language, resonance, carry-over, and non-verbal communication. Other outstanding features include coverage of the wide range of considerations, including the team approach and the role of the speech-language pathologist in treatment. Chapters include case studies and the appendices and extensive bibliography further enhance the depth and usefulness of this resource. An accompanying audio CD shows "before and after" communication therapy examples from ten M to F clients. An ideal resource for providing compassionate, focused and successful treatment for TG/TS clients.
