Online Stuttering Therapy For Children
Many people who stutter know what they would like to say but have trouble producing a normal speech flow.
The exact cause of stuttering is unknown, although research suggests that those with a familial history are more likely to stutter.
Interestingly, we may all go through periods of normal disfluency when we are young and learning to speak. However, if you or your child experience difficulty and tend to hesitate or repeat certain syllables or words for more than two months, that could be a sign of a stuttering problem.
The focus of therapy for children and adults is to change the way people who stutter communicate with others.
Our techniques target the speaker’s tension, struggle, and avoidance of the core moment of stuttering.
Stuttering therapy will be playful, and we will work side-by-side with the child to maximize the treatment effect. Our nationally certified team of speech-language pathologists are experts in stuttering and have a strong understanding of the research on various stuttering therapy techniques that are highly engaging for children.
Signs of a Stuttering Problem Include:
→ Consistently repeating sounds in a word or words in a sentence
→ Hesitating involuntarily between words in sentences
→ Avoiding saying words that are too difficult to say
→ Showing signs of struggle or anxiety when trying to speak
Stuttering Therapy Goals
The ultimate goal is to speak with less tension by reducing disfluencies, increasing awareness of stuttering moments, and treating secondary behaviors resulting from stuttering.
- Increase awareness of/reduce physical tension
- Reduce struggling behaviors/unlearn secondary behaviors
- Increase feelings of self-control
- Increase awareness of speech that is disfluent
- Increase feelings of openness and acceptance of disfluent speech
The trajectory of stuttering therapy interventions is different for each person, and there is no exact amount of time that applies to everyone. Each of your 30, 45, or 60-minute sessions will be productive and you’ll make measurable progress toward your communication goals!

CUSTOM GOALS & PLAN
At Exceptional Teletherapy, we believe that goals should be centered around you and created in collaboration with family. An individualized treatment plan for addressing your child’s specific issues will be created.
Since each child is unique and will respond differently to therapy methods, your therapist will create a treatment program tailor-made for your child’s needs and adapt their therapy as needed.
We’ll take the time to properly diagnose your child’s communication issues.
We have a variety of tools that we can use to identify your child’s specific areas of need. Speech-language evaluations may consist of reviewing educational and medical history, clinical observation, and interviews with caregivers. With a proper diagnosis, your child can receive targeted speech therapy to reduce or eliminate communication issues.
We care about helping children make measurable improvements.
Treatment goals will be set by your speech-language pathologist to create meaningful outcomes that achieve real-life improvement. Several of our therapists have teaching certificates. We understand the best, most engaging ways to work with children of all ages.
