Fluency

Stuttering is defined as a neurodevelopmental disorder whose primary symptoms are disfluencies, involuntary disruptions in the normal flow of speech ( Smith and Weber, 2017). It is a communication disorder in which the flow of speech is broken by repetitions (li-li-like this), prolongations (lllllike this), or abnormal stoppages (no sound) of sounds and syllables. There may also be unusual facial and body movements associated with the effort to speak. ( Stuttering Foundation).

This program runs two days per week and provides evaluation and speech therapy services for people who stutter of all ages.
