SCHOOL AGED CHILDREN– RUN WITH FLUENCY – 12 week Structured Fluency PROGRAM-Stuttering therapy is customized for each school aged child. Tools and strategies are available to improve fluency and boost confidence to overcome difficult speaking situations. Activities are geared towards the child’s interests. Our goal at this age is for the school aged child to manage stuttering and not let it stop them from talking. It is usually recommended for school aged children to be seen once to twice weekly and then transition to a group for maintenance. It is most effective when parents work directly with the child under my guidance and this is strongly encouraged. Children are put on a home program following therapy. Call 516-776-0184 today to schedule an evaluation.
