Empowering Children to Speak with Confidence

At McKibben & Monte, we understand that stuttering can be a challenging and frustrating communication disorder for children. Our dedicated team specializes in providing therapy and support to help children overcome stuttering and speak with fluency and confidence.

Understanding Stuttering

Stuttering is a speech disorder that affects the fluency and rhythm of speech and disruptions in the flow of speech, and it can have a significant impact on a child’s communication skills and self-confidence. It often manifests as repetitions or prolongations of sounds, syllables, words, or phrases. Children who stutter may also experience repetitions, prolongations, or blocks or hesitations, where they have difficulty continuing with speech.

Stuttering can vary in severity and may be accompanied by physical tension or struggle behaviors, such as facial grimacing or excessive body movements.

The exact causes of stuttering are not fully understood, but it is believed to be a combination of genetic, neurological, developmental, and environmental factors. Disruptions or delays in language development and speech skills can also contribute.

Our Approach

There are a few different options for treatment depending on the severity of the stuttering. Our speech therapists can include strategies such as slow and easy speech, gentle onset of words, and controlled breathing. Parent involvement and education is also extremely important. Parents should speak slowly, make eye contact, and avoid interruptions when talking with their child.

Our in-school therapy services extend to children dealing with stuttering in various Ohio areas, including Cincinnati, Cleveland, Columbus, Dayton, Toledo, Perrysburg, and YoungstownNorthern Kentucky, and Tampa, Florida.
