In today's global marketplace, the workforce is becoming more diversified. The ability to communicate effectively is critical. Beaumont's Accent Reduction Program can help improve English-speaking skills through modifying speech habits, including pronunciation, rhythm and intonation.
The Beaumont Accent Reduction program provides both individual and group sessions. Short-term and long-term, more intensive programs are available. Each program is customized to the individual's professional work environment (i.e., medical, business executive, computer programmer, clergy). Participants are provided with a computer CDROM program with printed manual to develop ongoing self-practice. Speech patterns are reviewed through speech sampling, tape recording and pronunciation assessment, sometimes with the assistance of computer voice-pattern recognition devices. This analysis helps create a specialized course of pronunciation, vocabulary, speech stress and intonation tasks.
Insurance typically does not cover this non-medically related service. Corporate employee-assistance programs or Michigan Rehabilitation Services may provide support when accent improvement promotes employment security and vocational advancement.Many companies provide financial assistance for their employees to attend this program.
