- Adult General Communication Skills
The General Communication Skills service provides a screening service to check your general communication skills and identify any areas of speech or language that may impact on your professional and/or personal life. The screening process covers aspects of communication such as articulation, language, voice and fluency, amongst other things.
Individual follow up sessions can be arranged if required. The program has a particular focus on voice and voice care and therefore is particularly suitable for people who depend on verbal communication in their professional roles (eg teachers, coaches, actors, singers etc).
As well as individual sessions, this program offers group Voice Care seminars which provide information, training and strategies to help you protect your voice from damage.
