  • We believe that stuttering is a complex multidimensional disorder best treated by a multifaceted approach. Due to the nature of stuttering, it is important for treatment to take individual needs into consideration. The CSTP is designed to provide therapy in a structured format that addresses various aspects of stuttering while paying attention to individual needs. The program will teach a number of to deal with stuttering moments effectively in daily life, provide an opportunity to practice these techniques, and increase control over fluent speech production. Additionally, the program also addresses various unhelpful reactions to stuttering on an individual level to help promote healthy accpetance of stuttering and develop the skills necessary to deal with a variety of real-life situations independently. The ultimate goal of the CSTP is to help one become their own clinician.
