The Art of Keeping an Healthy Voice

How to make it survive in the Internet jungle

From today you will find in all bookshops, even online, my new eBook titled “The Art of Keeping a Healthy Voice”.

It’s a 100-page eBook that includes much of the experience I’ve gained over the years while working and by receiving dozens and dozens of emails every day with desperate or disillusioned requests for help from people who somehow are no longer able to use their voices in everyday life.

My social commitment has been known for a long time. In addition to the various activities that go unnoticed, I always reply in person to all the emails I receive and I always offer everyone a voice assessment session directly with me. This may seem little, but on the practical side it keeps me very busy.

Based on the emails I receive, it seems that the DIY training and especially the tutorial videos on YouTube are at the basis of many jeopardized voices. Since it would be reckless for me to point out everything as “harmful” or “incompetent”, I preferred to give you a way to figure out by yourself when something is definitely to be avoided and not professional.

In the attempt to “save” at least some of these people in the first place, since the topic of “vocal health” is very important to me, I decided to make this ebook also available free of charge via my website.

I ask you to help me spread it as much as possible through your social networks, your blogs or any other website. The only recommendation is to share the link where to download the eBook and not the eBook itself. Sharing the link means sharing this page:

https://www.inbornvoice.com/us/art-of-keeping-a-healthy-voice.html

and not its content, because the book is protected by copyright and sharing the PDF would cause you unnecessary problems.

Here is where you can download the free eBook “The Art of Keeping a Healthy Voice” by Mylena Vocal Coach.

The eBook includes my 5 golden rules, 28 practical tips and 25 testimonials so that you can understand the magnitude of the problem.

For those who prefer paper or use a Kindle device, I asked the publisher to release it at a very low price, so you’ll find it really cheap.

How does the Way We Speak Influence Our Brain

Did you know the way we speak had an influence on our personality and our brain? Our 5 senses, sight, hearing, taste, smell, and touch affects how we see the world and how we communicate with each other either in writing or speaking.

Since the way we think is reflected by the way we speak, thus if we train ourselves speak in a better and more complete manner, we are effectively and continuously changing the neural pathway of our brain. As a result, the way we think will change also.

For example, every culture on our planet has a different way of mindset and thus has a different way of communicating. This can be seen when people of different cultures speak the same language with an accent. Americans write in American English but someone from California speaks differently than someone from Massachusetts.  A person from England speaks and writes differently than someone from Australia. It is more prevalent when a person who speaks English as a second language. Someone from Japan has a totally different mindset than someone from Spain and thus may hinder their ability to express themselves when they use English to communicate with each other. All these differences have proven to develop different brainwaves and neural connections inside our brain.

It is important to not forget that our brain is something that works with sound, images, tastes, touch, smell. When we communicate, we always choose to narrow our internal reality to a single word. Let’s think back and count how many times you use the word “awesome”, “absolutely”, “sure”, “amazing”. They are a representation of different ideas that came across your mind when you communicate with other people.

With that being said, it is crucial to learn how to speak better by taking voice & speech lessons from a professional voice coach. Mylena of Inborn Voice has over 30 years of experience of teaching hundreds of students in the world to improve their voice and speaking ability using the unique Inborn Voice method. The Inborn Voice method is intended to recover the powerful and expressive voice you had when you were a baby. Contact Mylena now to improve your voice & speech effectiveness in public speaking, acting, job interviews, and more. Inborn Voice offers lessons in the Cumming Center of Beverly, MA and online lessons for international students.

What are the Benefits of Speech Therapy for Autism

What is Autism?

Autism is a neurodevelopmental disorder that may impair communication as well as social and cognitive skills. It is also known as autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and a person with ASD may have the following traits:

  1. Repetitive Behavior such as repetitively stacking or lining up objects
  2. Less Social Understanding due to less eye contact and turn-taking, and unable to express themselves using movements

The biggest problems that might happen to a person with ASD are speech and communication problems. It can deeply affect their communication in many ways.

A person with autism may: 

  1. Not talk at all
  2. Make harsh sounds or utter grunts
  3. Frequently repeat what another person says
  4. Babbling
  5. Speak without an expressive tone of voice
  6. Struggle to create creative words
  7. Understand little of meaning of symbols

Because of these difficulties, a person with autism must spend more time and effort to learn how to speak than an average person would. Not only is there is a need to improve on their voice, but also body language, tone, and facial expressions. This is when a speech therapist like Mylena of Inborn Voice comes in to improve communication and enhance the quality of life of a person with autism.

Inborn Voice is different from traditional speech therapy techniques that are currently used worldwide:

  1. We take great care of not letting the child understand he/she is “wrong”. So we work with clients, especially the youngest one, in their home.
  2. We start evaluating their situation as an external observer and if we find the Inborn Voice Method is helpful, we will address and educate the parents first. They will be interacting with their child much longer than our session does and so the results will be much faster.
  3. We evaluate the progress from time to time, leaving the great training effort to the parent until the child is ready to start the journey through the Inborn Voice Method.

Some of the Benefits of the Inborn Voice method versus the traditional Speech Therapy:

  1. Parents can start seeing results as soon as after the first week.
  2. The child starts to understand they are not “wrong”: they are perfectly “okay”, even “special”.
  3. The child will start better interaction with other children of the same age and will start to develop new friends.
  4. Will start to develop better temporal and spatial awareness.

Research in Europe has shown that Inborn Voice can be an effective way to address those affected by autism and to let them improve their communications skills.
