Public Speaker

Public Speaking

Speaking in front of a crowd may feel like an impossible or daunting task. Or you might think it is not a skill you have. What we are here to tell you is that public speaking is a skill that can be taught and learned. As Speech Language Pathologists, we specialize in communication skills. We can guide your speaking skills and help you gain the confidence you need!

What to expect during your visit:

An assessment starts with casual conversation, questions about the individual's feelings around public speaking/ what situations they find challenging, and a mock interview/presentation/social situation.

 

Following this, the Speech Language Pathologist (SLP) will write a report that analyzes the client’s public speaking skills, including (but not limited to):

  • Eye contact

  • Body language

  • Volume

  • Rate of speech

  • Articulation

  • Organization of thoughts

  • Vocabulary choice

  • Breath

  • Psychological self-talk

After the assessment, the SLP can recommend how many sessions the individual would benefit from. The typical frequency of sessions is once a week for 6-10 sessions or as needed. In therapy, the areas of difficulty that were identified in the report will be worked on through discussion, strategies and practice, and self-reflection. The goal is to increase confidence through strong public speaking skills.
