Jordan Ross Jakomin, M.S, CCC-SLP 

Jordan is a licensed and board-certified speech-language pathologist specialising in gender affirming voice and communication. He holds a certificate of Clinical Competence (CCC) from the American Speech-Language Hearing Association (ASHA) and is an active member of The World Professional Association for Transgender Health (WPATH).

Jordan believes in the importance of connecting with other healthcare professionals around the world who are involved in transgender healthcare, to learn and grow from one another. To that end he has teamed up with GenderGP to offer two interactive workshops:

 

Workshop 1

Introduction to Voice and Communication Across the Gender Spectrum Workshop

An interactive zoom workshop in a group format to inform and guide binary and non-binary trans, and gender non-conforming individuals about how voice therapy may help with discovering a unique and authentic sounding voice. Participants will learn about the theory and practice of voice therapy. They will be given vocal exercises they can practice at home and they will learn how to choose a voice therapist that is right for them. Jordan will also recommend the best apps and other tools to support participants in achieving their goal. The workshops are intended for anyone who has considered voice therapy but isn’t sure where to start.

Topics Covered: anatomy, breath support, relaxation, resonance, vocal health, pitch, intonation, coughing, laughing, throat-clearing, body language, effects of testosterone on voice

Duration: 60 minutes

Per Participant Cost: £25

Workshop 2

Pitch & Intonation Intensive Workshop

A 1-hour intensive workshop exploring pitch and intonation exercises across the gender spectrum. Workshop participants will be guided through techniques on how to measure pitch and ways to be expressive while staying in their unique pitch range. Rising intonation, falling intonation, and how to emphasize certain words in speech will be covered.
