School age stuttering assessment and intervention services are available for children who stutter (ages 5-13).
Therapy for school age children involves education regarding speech and stuttering as well as training in speech and stuttering modification strategies. With this age group, the therapeutic process also emphasizes support of a child's self-esteem and confidence as he or she learns to handle and cope with stuttering in everyday life.
Many times, children can feel alone in dealing with their stuttering. Parents, siblings and peers are a vital part of therapy for school age children who stutter. At Stuttering Therapy Services, we strive to develop a positive support system for children, while empowering them to become their own best advocates for helping other people understand stuttering.
