Stuttering Therapy: HCRI’s Key Points of Distinction

As you consider your options for stuttering therapy, we hope you will closely examine HCRI’s systematic approach to fluency training and the passion for excellence that infuses our work.  You will find:

  • We believe that the highest purpose in our work with stuttering is to develop and to free human potential.
  • We believe fundamental success in the treatment of stuttering requires a well-grounded emphasis on empiracal analysis of the events that compromise this disorder.
  • We believe that our physically based speech reconstruction program represents the most powerful method for enhancing fuency and for simultaneously reducing the psychological burdens of stuttering.

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

Pioneers in Stuttering Therapy

HCRI was the first to demonstrate that stuttering is physically based and introduced behavioral stuttering treatment more than 35 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 stuttering treatment 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 Clinicians

HCRI clinicians treat more people who stutter in one year than most speech professionals treat in a lifetime. Extensively trained and compassionate, our therapists are uniquely qualified to guide you on the path to fluency during treatment – and are always available by phone once you return home.

Breadth and Depth of Experience

Nearly 6,000 people from 48 countries have come to HCRI for stuttering therapy. We have served people from 10 to 73 years of age and treated a full range of stuttering types and severities. 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, interesting, and effective. Our proprietary tools make it easier for you to acquire new speech skills and track your fluency progress throughout treatment.
