HCRI Advantages and Distinctions

As you consider your many options for stuttering therapy, we hope you will closely examine HCRI's scientifically-based, systematic approach to fluency training - and the passion for excellence that infuses our work.

We believe...

  1. The highest purpose in our work with stuttering is to develop and to free human potential.
  2. Fundamental success in the treatment of stuttering requires a well-grounded emphasis on empirical analysis of the events that comprise this disorder.
  3. HCRI physically based speech reconstruction program represents the most powerful method for enhancing fluency and for simultaneously reducing the psychological burdens of stuttering.

Following are HCRI's key points of distinction regarding our work and stuttering therapy program.

Pioneers and in Stuttering Therapy

HCRI was the first to demonstrate that stuttering is physically based and introduced behavioral stuttering treatment 40+ years ago. Since that time, our researchers have continually tested and refined our therapy to deliver one of the most advanced, results-based stuttering treatment programs in the world.

World-Class Clinical Quality

HCRI's behavioral stuttering treatment is comprehensive, systematic, and quality-controlled to maximize fluency outcomes. Our expert clinicians administer therapy with precision and care. Moreover, our proprietary treatment tools and technology help make your fluency learning easier and long lasting.

Therapy that Transforms Lives

HCRI's fluency training program has enhanced the lives of thousands of people who stutter. Research shows 93% of clients acquire fluent speech in 12 days and 70-75% retain fluency for the long term. Now, let us help you open new doors of opportunity that come with fluent speech.

Ongoing Therapy Innovation

HCRI is unique in that work focuses on conducting objective research and developing new treatment methods, as well as administering therapy. Our findings drive continual improvements to the therapy process, increasing the sophistication, practicality, and probability of personal success in treatment.

Exceptionally Skilled, Compassionate Clinicians

HCRI clinicians treat more people who stutter in one year than most speech professionals treat in a lifetime. Each therapist participates in a 500-hour training program at HCRI to ensure consistent, systematic delivery of our proven treatment. This training is not available any where else. That means our therapists are uniquely qualified to guide you on the path to fluency during treatment and serve as a valuable resource for you once your return home.

Breadth and Depth of Experience

More than 6,500 people from 50 countries have come to HCRI for stuttering therapy. We have served people from 11 to 73 years of age from all walks of life and treated a full range of stuttering types and severity. This means we almost certainly have successfully treated stuttering conditions similar to yours.

Sophisticated Treatment Technology

HCRI is a leader in therapy innovation by continually developing new technologies that make the therapy process more powerful, engaging, and effective. Our proprietary tools make it easier for you to acquire new speech skills and track your fluency progress throughout treatment.

Comprehensive, Ongoing Support

At HCRI, we are your partner in fluency for life. We're here for you every step of the way during the treatment process, as well as when you return home. Our comprehensive package of post-therapy support tools, resources, and services are designed to help you maintain fluency for a lifetime.

The HCRI Difference

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.

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.

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.
