This session is developed by, and presenters invited by, SIG 3: Voice and Voice Disorders. The World Professional Association of Transgender Health (WPATH) recently published guidelines for transgender voice and communication intervention. These principles and a growing international literature provide clinicians with evidence-based strategies for serving transgender clients. This presentation will discuss strategies for modifying voice and resonance in the context of WPATH’s guidelines.
