Speech-language pathologists are ideal providers for transgender individuals who want to develop gender-congruent communication behaviors because of our understanding of the mechanics of behavior change, as well as our training in voice, verbal, and non-verbal language. This presentation will include evidence-based and creative approaches to working with these individuals.

Learner Outcomes:  At the completion of this presentation, participants will be able to list 5 vocal features to target in voice feminization therapy, compare and contrast male versus female language behaviors and list five stereotypical female and five stereotypical male non-verbal behaviors.
