Assessing Attitudes and Knowledge Regarding Voice Modification in Transgender People Among Practicing Speech Language Pathologists (SLPS) in Texas
The purpose of this cross-sectional study is to examine the attitudes and knowledge of voice modification in TG persons among practicing SLPs in the state of Texas. Thirty-nine individuals completed the 10-minute survey with 38 questions. SLPs in Texas who responded are professionally and personally comfortable working with transgender individuals. Most respondents did not know what was targeted in voice modification services, however are willing to learn. Respondents’ attitudes, knowledge and comfort were impacted most by personal values, graduate school education and personal relationships. The results from this study support the need for education and clinical training on cultural competence for the LGBTQ population and voice modification for TG persons.
