Summary

The transsexual has numerous problems in the area of voice and diction. Some are subjective, such as quality, while others are objective and measurable, such as intensity, but all lend themselves to speech therapy. The speech clinician can help with problems involving pitch, quality, resonance articulation, vocabulary, and inflection. The absence of a feminine self-image among recent female transsexuals compounds the voice and diction difficulties. Speech therapists are not psycho-therapists and must realize, as most of them do, that help in the area of self-image is not in their province. But a solution to voice and diction problems can lead to a more favorable self-image among transsexuals adapting to a new role. (RB)
