Health Tip: Before You Get Help for Stuttering

(HealthDay News) -- Different speech therapists have differing approaches for stuttering, so it's important to evaluate your needs before choosing a therapist, the Stuttering Foundation says.

Before starting treatment, the Foundation suggests asking therapist candidates these questions:

  • How comfortable are you with treating stuttering?

  • How many teens and adults who stutter have you worked with?

  • What do you think the primary goals of stuttering therapy should be?

  • Which approaches do you use in speech therapy?

  • How often is therapy scheduled?
