THERAPY

Pittsburgh Stuttering Therapy provides individualized treatment based on the unique needs of each client. The general goal of therapy is always to improve quality of life by decreasing the negative effects that stuttering may cause. Here are some examples of how we will work to achieve those goals

Education - to develop a deeper understanding of what stuttering is and to learn how to advocate for yourself or your child

Acceptance - to work toward improving self-confidence and developing healthier attitudes about your communication 

Minimizing your negative reactions toward stuttering, such as fear and anxiety, so that you can decrease avoidance behaviors and increase participation in speaking situations and social settings

Decreasing tension during speaking so that you can communicate more effectively and with less effort
