Stuttering/Stammering

Stuttering is a speech disorder where someone has difficulty producing fluid or smooth speech. Stuttering can be characterized by involuntary hesitations, blocking sounds, sound repetitions, word repetitions and prolongations. These characteristics make it difficult for the speaker to get their message across smoothly.

Stuttering therapy is appropriate for adults who are bothered by their stuttering. Experts know that stuttering is only problematic when the person who stutters feels that it is. Some people would rather tackle their stuttering from an acceptance approach rather than a reduction approach, and we respect that choice. Contact us and we can discuss treatments options that suit your feelings about stuttering.
