3. Do I need a referral from my General Practitioner to receive these sessions
No referral is required to start any of our Elocution and Communication Programs as these are non-medical services.
4. Can I receive private health care rebates for these sessions
Most Private Health funds stipulate that they do not cover accent reduction, elocution or English pronunciation training. Speech Pathology is covered by Private Health funds for diagnosable medical disorders and communication disorders such as stuttering, voice disorders and neurological impairments. Technically, an high-performance communication needs are not related to communication disorders.

*If you have a social communication diagnosis like Aspergers or Autism, please refer to our Social Skills for Adults programs. 

5. Can I receive Medicare cover for Elocution and Communication Sessions
No.

Medicare rebates are not available for elocution and high-performance communication services. Voice Science is registered as a Medicare provider but you will only be eligible for Medicare rebates if you are referred to us via your General Practitioner under a Chronic Disease Management Plan. Medicare rebates are only eligible if you have been diagnosed with a clinical voice, speech, communication or swallowing disorder that has persisted, or is likely to persist, for at least 6 months. Read more about this program here.

6. Is it possible for my company or employer to cover payment of my High Performance Communication Program?
Many employers assist in the payment of elocution & communication training at Voice Science in order to develop their staff to better meet Key Performance Indicators, particularly in the areas of communication. Voice Science partners with companies to strengthen communication skills for their employees career success. We are able to provide information to your employer or recruiter about what types of accent and communication training we can implement to assist you in your career.
7. I really want to use Voice Science for my Communication training but I don’t live in Melbourne. What can I do?
We have options! We assist clients all over the world to enhance their communication. We provide communication that is individual and just as detailed as our in house communication training programs through our secure web conferencing portal.
8. If I sign up for a Elocution & Communication Program at Voice Science, how long will it take for me to notice changes and progress in my communication?
Adjusting communication behaviours and patterns of speaking is a process. How long it takes for you to notice change in your general communication depends on a few factors:

1) Your mindset

2) Practice. One of the key predictors of speech change is how effectively and frequently you practice and appraise your communication goals. At Voice Science, we will support you in developing a clear understanding of how to practice. This is one of our key interests for any client who commences training at Voice Science, especially since research evidence supports the impact of regular, drill-based practice on speech and language change outcomes. We will create individual practice goals with you that are strategic.

9. I am worried about how to incorporate daily communication practice so that I can achieve my communication goals. How will I know how to practice?
We will write goals to improve your practice approach. Everyone comes from a different scholastic background. For most adults, the idea of daily practice can be very foreign. Sarah tries to share her knowledge about practice theory that she has obtained as a professional classical musician with all clients in  order to support their engagement with a practice schedule. It can take some time to develop motivation and routine with practice. This is something that we encourage you to discuss openly and frankly with your speech pathologist so we can assist you to incorporate speech and communication practice into your daily routine.
10. Do you provide group communication training sessions at Voice Science?
No.

For communication to adjust it is important that each client receives training that is targeted to their communication needs. This is the reason why we do not offer group-based communication training as every person will have different communication needs.

Your speech pathologist will require you to provide key information to be used throughout your treatment to develop goals that support your communication needs. This might involve the submission of work specific vocabulary, description of typical communication activities that you engage in, the provision of conference papers that you need to present etc. Providing this information will allow us to integrate and simulate real-life communication tasks into your training so that you can address your goals pragmatically. By focusing on individual 1-1 sessions we ensure our training is client-centred, evidence-based and success driven.

*We do deliver workshops for companies under our corporate services. Contact us for more info if you are seeking training for a group of employees.

12. When are Elocution sessions available at Voice Science?
We provide communication training during business hours from Mondays to Fridays between 9am – 5pm AEST. The last session for each day is a 4pm session.
13. How do online sessions work?
We have worked successfully online with many clients since we started business in 2013. If you are wondering how online sessions work, you should definitely read this article we have written just for you!
14. How Many Sessions Do I Need?
The High-Performance Communication Audit will investigate and rate your current communication against your goals and daily needs. This assessment protocol will identify your ability to use the following effectively:

  • voice tone
  • speech expression
  • speech fluency
  • speech rate and speed
  • language and vocabulary
  • social communication and rapport building
  • specific communication activities like: networking, pitching, public speaking, appearing in video or podcasts and interviews, media readiness
  • pragmatic skills: diplomacy, persuasion, assertiveness, empathy and rapport
  • body language and delivery in space
  • written skills as required

 

This information is then used to forecast the number of sessions required to address your communication needs.

We usually recommend between 5 -15 sessions.

15. Are Practice Resources Included?
This is one of our favourite things at Voice Science- equipping our clients with incredible resources to take their goals forward.
