Who is this client?
Alice is a kindergarten teacher who speaks both Mandarin and English. She used to stutter but now feels that there is something wrong with her pacing and fluency. As a kindergarten teacher some key responsibilities Alice holds are:
- Teaching children with patience and creativity.
- Develop activities to stimulate the children.
- Establish policies and procedures for inside and outside the classroom.
- Communicating with children in a simple and understandable way.
What were her goals?
Alice was a singer and therefore needed to work on using diaphragmatic breathing when singing to improve the smoothness of her vocals. Alice also required practice using the correct intonation within phrases and conversations.
How did Speak Fluent's Speech- Language Pathologist help?
To address these problems, Alice worked with two of our Speech-Language Pathologists. After 12 sessions, Alice could sing smoother by breathing in at the right moments. She also improved her intonation, improving her ability to converse in different situations.
