With over 20 years experience in stuttering therapy, we offer the Lidcombe Program for young children and customized programs for school age children, teens and adults. It is important to seek a stuttering specialist in this area to try and eliminate stuttering in young children. We offer fluency tools to older students so they can decrease stuttering and feel free to talk without fear. We are fortunate to provide a specialist who overcame a severe stuttering disorder.
