Aural Rehabilitation - Speech
This area offers the opportunity to work on improving how one produces/says the specific sounds as well as how well one is able to use the rules of English to" pronounce" words (for example, the in the word "phone", 'ph' is produced as 'f'; the 'e' at the end of the word is silent). In addition, one can improve how they use their voice as it relates to how well other people understand what they are saying.
- Articulation (production of speech sounds)
- Pronunciation/dictionary skills (knowledge of English rules and dictionary symbols to produce words)
- Voice/intelligibility (pitch, loudness, nasality, breath support, etc.)
