Fluency Disorders

Stuttering is a communication disorder in which the flow of speech is disrupted by repetitions (whole word and part word), prolongation and struggle behavior (unusual facial and body movements that occur while speaking). Here at Let's Talk we teach strategies and techniques that will allow the child to be in control of the stuttering instead of the stuttering controlling the child. Early intervention is most important when treating this disorder.
