Any experiences with improving an autistic voice pattern?

What kind of therapies work?

Any PC/Smartphone based tools?

I am thinking of hiring somebody by Skype to help me with both autistic voice and articulation.

What should I look for? How many hours for some improvements?

(This is for myself, an adult)

My sister is an actress and when I was younger she taught me some techniques about how to use my voice but I still struggle to use those techniques during social situations. In my case I have great difficulty articulating my thoughts spontaneously and I have a super silent voice I need to repeat myself all the time. I mumble often too.

Yes, looking in Youtube, there seems to be folks offering to help with Articulation.
The only offers I can find for inflection seems to be for performers.

Hi mrsmith!

Fascinating. Two questions I frequently get based on how I speak are where I come from (i.e. which foreign country) and whether I teach in kindergarten (I especially hate that one).
I would love to research whether this might have anything to do with what you call Autistic Voice.

Could you please recommend a few sources I can look at? :)
