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...

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

Key Points of Difference

HCRI was the first to demonstrate that stuttering is physically based and introduced behavioral stuttering treatment 50 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.

HCRI's behavioral stuttering treatment is comprehensive, systematic, and quality-controlled to maximize fluency results. 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.

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 75% retain fluency when evaluated two years after therapy. Now, let us help you open new doors of opportunity that come with fluent speech

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 stuttering therapy process, increasing the sophistication, practicality, and probability of personal success in treatment.

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 stuttering therapy team is uniquely qualified to guide you on the path to fluency during treatment and serve as a valuable resource for you once your return home.

More than 6,500 people from across the U.S. and 50 countries have come to HCRI for stuttering therapy. We have served individuals from 11 to 73 years of age who come from all walks of life. Our clinicians have treated a full range of stuttering types from mild to severe. This means we almost certainly have successfully treated stuttering conditions similar to yours.

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.

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.
