Comprehensive Stuttering Therapy Program

The Comprehensive Stuttering Therapy Program (CSTP) is a 2-week intensive clinic designed for adolescents and adults who stutter (14 years and older). The program, established in 2011, is offered by the Speech-Language-Hearing Clinic every July. 


SUMMER 2020: The CSTP is scheduled for July 20, 2020 through July 31, 2020. It is a 2-week intensive therapy program with daily sessions Monday - Friday. The program will meet from 1 PM - 6 PM each day and includes an hour of group therapy from 1 PM - 2 PM followed by individual sessions from 2 PM - 6 PM. After completion of the summer intensive clinic, each participant will be given access to our exclusive online support group, which is a safe online space to meet others who stutter and have attended the CSTP. This will allow each person to receive continued support from peers in their journey with stuttering management. Attending the support group is strongly encouraged but not required.

  • 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.
