COMPTON PHONOLOGICAL ASSESSMENT OF
FOREIGN ACCENT
There are 4 sections to the Compton Phonological Assessment of Foreign Accent.   It is a slightly expanded version of the screening.   The first section provides us with valuable information about your background and current communication needs.  The remaining 3 sections will involve recording samples of your speech in a variety of contexts. You will need to use your microphone to complete the assessment.
What Happens After You Complete the Assessment?
Upon submission your speech professional will analyze your speech and confirm the length of course you will need.  The recommendation will also include a personal phonetic analysis.  Based on the phonetic analysis a completely individualized program is constructed to match your level of pronunciation proficiency.  You and your speech professional will then discuss a course schedule.  Upon receipt of your training materials you will begin your daily practice and weekly  interaction with your speech professional.
