Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Mary Elizabeth Moody, MA, CCC-SLP(George Washington University)
Description: This book provides a sound basis of current knowledge and treatment for the transgender/transsexual client population. It is a much-needed reference that includes the diverse aspects of the approach to treatment and serves well as the vanguard in this field.
Purpose: The author indicates in the preface that the approaches presented might serve as guidelines and that the information might help to standardize treatment methods. The objectives are worthy; the book delivers even more than the proffered purpose.
Audience: According to the author, the book is written for practitioners with prior experience in the field of voice. I completely concur. The authors demonstrate credibility repeatedly by displaying a solid knowledge base in the area, and by developing a very sensitive and accurate approach to treatment.
Features: The book addresses multiple aspects of treatment for transgender/transsexual clients. The approach is thorough, taking into consideration the whole client: medically, psychologically, linguistically, pragmatically, vocally. I was especially taken with the chapters by Sandy Hirsch regarding non-verbal communication: the current research is very clearly presented and combined with practical and concrete treatment strategies. After working for years with TG/TS clients, I have seen repeatedly that this approach is the best appreciated and understood.
Assessment: I know of no other book in the field that approaches this topic so thoroughly and completely. As a standard reference in the field, it stands with Van Riper's initial offering or Boone's first books. An excellent and much needed validating breakthrough.

    This book addresses an essential key to the health and well-being of one of America's (and the world's) important minorities. Lest there be any misunderstanding, transsexual individuals don't choose to be transgendered. Readers will find this book an essential guide to concepts making up the science of speech and speech therapy, as well as a source of much-needed insight into the speech and language changes required of those men and women who are compelled by biology and painful personal history to attempt a successful transition to life in another gender.
