Accent Reduction Services

An accent is the unique way that speech is pronounced by a group of people speaking the same language based upon their background. Accents are NOT a speech or language disorder. When nonnative speakers speak Standard American English they typically use the sounds and intonation patterns that they are familiar with from their primary language. This creates speech that sounds “accented” to native speakers and may cause problems with communication.

Have you noticed:

  • People don't (or occasionally don't) understand you?
  • You avoid social interaction with those who may not understand you.
  • You feel frustration from having to repeat yourself all the time.
  • People focusing on your accent more than on what you are trying to say.
  • Academic struggles?
  • Your accent holding you back in your career?
