Speech & Fluency

Image by Adrian Swancar

Stuttering therapy is aimed at helping individuals who experience disruptions in the flow of speech, such as repetitions, prolongations, or blocks. Therapy begins with a comprehensive assessment by a speech-language pathologist (SLP) to understand the nature and severity of the stuttering. Based on this assessment, a personalized treatment plan is created.

Therapy typically involves a combination of techniques and strategies tailored to the individual's needs. These may include fluency shaping techniques, which focus on modifying the physical aspects of speech production to promote smoother speech, and stuttering modification techniques, which aim to reduce the fear and anxiety associated with stuttering and make moments of stuttering less severe. Cognitive-behavioral strategies may also be used to address the emotional and psychological aspects of stuttering.

Throughout the therapy process, the SLP works closely with the individual to practice and reinforce these techniques in various speaking situations, gradually building confidence and communication skills. The goal is to help the individual achieve more fluent speech and effective communication in daily life.
