Effective Stuttering Therapy in 12 days
Award-Winning Pioneers in Stuttering Therapy

At HCRI, we work each day to improve the lives of people who stutter and have championed this cause for more than 40 years. Our early research revealed that stuttering is a physical condition – and not caused by mental or emotional factors. These findings led to our developing the first comprehensive and effective behavioral therapy for stuttering.

Since that time, we have continued to raise the bar on stuttering treatment and fluency outcomes through ongoing research, innovation, and creating new standards of clinical excellence.

Our 12-day adult stuttering therapy is one-of-a-kind. It’s practical. It’s powerful. And, it puts you in full control of your speech.

 

Train Like an Athlete to Speak Like a Poet

HCRI stuttering treatment takes hard work, commitment, and practice. You’ll find it unlike any other speech therapy you’ve tried. Our tested approach is systematic, quality-controlled, and results-driven.

During your stuttering treatment, you’ll work with expert clinicians (our “trainers”) and learn new ways of using your speech muscles. You’ll exercise those muscles rigorously and precisely, with the same intensity as an athlete who trains to win. You’ll benefit from specialized fluency tools and ongoing support. And, you’ll reach your finish line by freeing your voice through fluency.

 

Know Your Likelihood of Success BEFORE Therapy

We’ve treated 6,300+ people, representing a full range of stuttering types and severity. So, you can be assured we have successfully treated a speech condition like yours. It is important to note that not everyone is successful – and there is no “cure” for stuttering. Yet, data show that the vast majority of people become fluent with HCRI therapy. 93% achieve fluency in 12 days and 70-75% retain fluency for the long term. That means you can expect similar results.

The HCRI Difference

rt_1
HCRI is recognized as a leader in stuttering therapy. We developed the first comprehensive behavioral stuttering treatment, as well as the first speech measurement and feedback system for therapy. We continually research and upgrade our treatment program, based on new discoveries and technology, to make fluency learning easier and more sustainable. As a result, you benefit by participating in one of the most advanced, results-based therapy programs available.

rt_2
For 40 years, we’ve researched and treated stuttering, made presentations around the globe, trained therapists across the U.S., and partnered with national agencies on stuttering research. We’ve helped more than 6,100 people, representing all types and severities of stuttering. We have the experience and know how to help you on the path to fluency.

HCRI’s treatment is comprehensive, systematic, and quality-controlled. We test every detail of the therapy process, and have systems to ensure treatment reliability. This includes having HCRI clinicians participate in 500 extra hours of customized training. These stringent standards ensure you achieve the best possible therapy outcomes.

HCRI stuttering therapy has enhanced the lives of thousands of people who stutter. Research shows 90-93% of clients acquire fluent speech in 12 days and 70-75% retain fluency when evaluated one and again two years post therapy. You can expect similar results if you give 100% to the therapy process.

rt_5
Our extensive post-therapy tools and support are unmatched. Examples include our computer-based FluencyNet system, monthly video tips, HCRI reunions, fluency practice groups, and a free iPhone app that serves as a clinician in your pocket. Of course, we are always available by phone, email and Skype to offer assistance. At HCRI, we are your partner in fluency for life.

Stuttering has enormous personal cost in the form of lost opportunities at work, school and socially. Therapy also comes at a price − but therapies are not created equally. The hourly cost of HCRI’s therapy program, which totals 100 hours over 12-days, is less than half the national average. Plus, HCRI provides a high probability of a positive, lasting outcome. All things considered, HCRI represents one of the best therapy values available – and financing is available.
