Saturday, October 22nd is International Stuttering Awareness Day. Our speech-language pathologists are proud to be members of the National Stuttering Association (NSA), and hosts to the groups monthly support group meetings held in our Kirkland office. The group helps members build self-confidence, become more comfortable speaking and offers support and ongoing education.
According to the NSA, although there is no cure for stuttering, people who stutter can learn to speak more easily, feel better about themselves, and communicate more effectively through therapy. Early intervention is the best way to help children overcome their speaking difficulties, and that is why it is important to seek an evaluation with a speech-language pathologist if there are any concerns with a child’s speech. Our team of SLP’s are proud of the services they offer our patients, by helping them manage their stuttering, increase their speech fluency, and improve their self-esteem
Please contact one of our offices if you would like to set up an evaluation or take part in one of our support group meetings held every third Wednesday of the month.
