Accent Reduction and Speech Fluency

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. Many corporate workers throughout Sydney attend our offices to receive our Accent Reduction service.

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.

We are now offering corporate accent reduction / speech fluency group therapy for a small group of professionals:

Due to overwhelming demand for an affordable, corporate accent reduction service we are now offering group-based consultations on Wednesday evenings. Please note that these sessions do not involve following a pre-written programme. All group sessions are planned for week-by-week depending on the needs of each individual in the group.

Rachel Granter, a Speech Pathologist with over 20 years experience will be conducting these group sessions. Rachel is a native Australian speaker and specialises in the area of accent reduction. Each group member will receive an initial 1:1 consultation with Rachel to determine the most important goals to be targeted within the sessions. All resources provided during the group sessions will apply to your individual goals and each group member will receive a different package to take home each week.

Details of our next course:
- Course commencement date: Wednesday evenings from 5-7pm - this group is ongoing and you may attend as many sessions as you would like. We need to be notified of your attendance at least two days in advance so we can write your specific goals into the programme.
- Location: Startright Speech Therapy office located at 84 Talavera Road, Macquarie Park, 2113
