For those who might enjoy seeing these, I am posting the quotes I have collected over the years on this page http://quotescollectedovertheyears.blogspot.com/

Speech Therapy for teens and adults

Stuttering therapy for teens and adults usually means changing long-standing speech behaviors, emotions, and attitudes about talking and communication in general. As a result, length and type of therapy can vary greatly depending on your goals. A list of sample therapy goals for teens and adults includes:
Reducing the frequency of stuttering;
Decreasing the tension and struggle of stuttering moments;
Working to decrease word or situation avoidances;
Learning more about stuttering;
Using effective communication skills such as eye contact or phrasing; and,
Determining whether goals relate to long-term change or to meet a specific short-term need, such as a job interview.
Working together with a speech pathologist who is knowledgeable about stuttering will help you identify your personal goals.
