The early years: We provide a variety of treatment options that fit your child and family because there is no “one size fits all” approach. These may include The Lidcombe Program, Palin Parent-Child Interaction therapy, and other direct and indirect therapy options.
School-age and adults: Treatment generally begins with understanding mechanics of stuttering and feelings, thoughts, and emotions associated with it. Although there is much research on stuttering, there is no known cure at this time. Therapy at SSTA aims to help individuals feel more comfortable during stuttering moments. This includes decreasing stress and tension, while decreasing avoidance and escape behaviors and improving confidence in all communication situations. We believe it is important to look at the whole person, not only the physical speech output.
