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/

One week of therapy!

"A week-long, intense course of speech therapy may help reduce stuttering, a new study shows. What's more, improvements in speech corresponded with actual brain changes documented on MRI scans."  Read the rest of the article at http://www.webmd.com/brain/news/20120808/week-long-speech-therapy-may-improve-stuttering

The Stuttering Foundation responds to this article with "It is our experience that a competent therapist can help a person who stutters become fluent in one week. That is not the challenge; the goal in stuttering therapy is staying fluent - taking what you learn in the therapy setting and transferring it into the real world and maintaining that level of fluency over time."  Read the rest here

The Foundation has referrals to speech therapists who are trained to work with stuttering.  They have lists of intensive clinics and summer workshops, too.
