“What’s the secret of your speech therapy?”

A question that we get a lot and here’s the answer:

We don’t approach stuttering (in adults) as a speech problem or speech defect. Because stuttering is the result of something much deeper.

Most people who stutter speak fluent, or significantly more fluent, when they’re alone and talking to themselves. But as soon as they get themselves into social situations, as soon as other people start looking at them, they start stuttering.

This means that there’s nothing wrong with the breathing, or speaking, or articulation of the person who stutters, but that stuttering is triggered by the reaction to that social situation.

It’s that reaction that we fix so that stuttering isn’t triggered anymore. This creates lasting fluency in every social situation.
