Has Your Child Been Struggling with Stuttering?
If your child is living with a communication disorder such as stuttering, our licensed Batavia speech therapists can help.
Stuttering is a type of fluency disorder that is fairly common in children. It occurs when the flow of speech is interrupted by unusual verbal stops in speech, partial-word repetitions (e.g., “b-b-boy”), or prolonging sounds and syllables (e.g., “sssssnake”). Your child may be self-aware of their stuttering and struggling with wanting to socialize with others. Stuttering is most commonly diagnosed in children from the ages of 2 and 5. It is not unusual for a stutter to not resolve by itself for one reason or another.
If your child has been struggling with a stutter and it is starting to impact their daily life, it may be time to consult with one of our speech therapists at Therapy Care. Contact us today to get started!
How can speech therapy help my child with his or her stutter?
When your child arrives for the initial consultation, a speech therapist will conduct a comprehensive evaluation to determine the best possible treatment plan for his or her needs.
One of our speech therapists will work with your child in a relaxed, friendly setting. You may have one or more sessions per week, depending on your child’s needs.
In addition, by keeping up with regular appointments with a speech therapist, the activities and focus may change or adjust to help better meet your child’s needs and manage his or her stuttering disorder.
