Accent Reduction

Speech Pathology can help to decrease the presence of foreign accent and help you sound more 'Australian' if you speak English as a second language.

A Speech Pathology assessment is recommended if:

♦ Unfamiliar people have difficulty understanding your English accent.

♦ Clients or colleagues have difficulty understanding your accent, thus affecting your communication in the workplace.

Accent reduction therapy involves changing speech patterns, including:

♦ Pronunciation

♦ Intonation

♦ Rhythm

Therapy can also be beneficial if you want to learn an accent other than Australian English, which can be particularly beneficial if you will be working overseas.
