STUTTERING (FLUENCY) THERAPY
Stuttering affects the fluency of speech. A child who stutters may be heard to repeat the first sound or syllable of words (I w-w-w-want to go too!), make certain sounds too long in words (Can I sssssee that?), or even have “blocks” where the words just won't “come out.” Everyone has dysfluent speech at times, and many young children go through a developmental phase where stuttering occurs but goes away on it's own. If you have noticed a prolonged pattern of stuttering in your child (6 months or more), have a family history of stuttering, or if you or your child have strong fears or concerns about your child's ability to speak fluently, contact us for an evaluation.
