Do you struggle with speech intelligibility? Do others often ask you to repeat what you just said? Are you sometimes frustrated when speaking English?
You may be experiencing the following:
people having trouble understanding you
frustration with having to repeat yourself
having others focus on your accent instead of what you are saying
avoiding social situations due to the fear of being misunderstood
Needless to say, the above difficulties may be impacting your professional, educational, and/or social life.
The good news is that you can change your accent! Yes, it does take a commitment of time and a little hard work. As a speech/language pathologist, I can provide you with an analysis of your speaking patterns and develop a structured and individualized program of accent modification (also known as accent reduction).
I have over 30 years experience as a speech/language pathologist in both education and healthcare settings. My extensive professional background in hospitals and other healthcare facilities allows me to serve those employed in the medical profession where speaking English with good intelligibility is crucial for the well-being and comfort of patients.
My certification in accent modification through Compton P-ESL allows me to provide you with a program that has excellent measurable outcomes.
Services are provided via the web (local and international) and face-to-face in the Sarasota area.
