Any effective treatment strategy starts with a good evaluation. Each client receives a comprehensive in-depth video analysis. We'll look at not just how many times you stutter but "HOW" you stutter. We will break it down into different types of stuttering behaviors, analyze for secondary characteristics, as well asses social emotional components. All this is done to create an Individualized Therapy Program
INDIVIDUALIZED THERAPY PROGRAM
- Identification and Awareness Training
- Self-Analysis of your own speech
- Emotion beliefs and fears surrounding stuttering
- Modification and Shaping strategies
- Great, now how do I do that in the "Real-World"
Children (Ages 3-11 years)
Typically stuttering if treated at a young age can be managed more
effectively. If the behaviors are continued through many years, it can take
longer and more frequent treatment to overcome.
The pressures of being a teenager can be overwhelming enough, many teens who struggle with stuttering may also have to deal with the difficulties of communicating with friends and teachers. We provide teens a method of managing their disorder in order to confidently participate in school and activities.
Most adults who stutter have been doing so for a majority of their lives.
The stuttering may be more frequent or severe at different times
or under different circumstances in ones life. Treatment will take
a focused attention on implementing strategies to overcome and manage
the disorder and becoming more confident in communication abilities.
