Let me briefly summarize what my program does and what you can expect.

Basically, the program replaces your stuttered speech with a new way of talking which is incompatible with stuttering. You start this with a very slow rate of speaking during which you don't stutter from the first day of therapy. Gradually the rate is increased until it approximates normal speaking. At this point you are stutter-free in the clinic.

The last part of the program is when you transfer this stutter-free speech into speaking situations outside the clinic and at home starting with very easy speaking situations and gradually moving to more difficult ones when you are ready.

Out of state clients fly into Orange County international airport. The Center is located in Newport Beach, California which is five minutes from the airport and twenty Disneyland. Many hotels and motels are available.

Let me know if I can help.
