Treatment of Stuttering

ROANOKE, Va., July 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Scientists at Hollins Communications Research Institute (HCRI), a non-profit research and clinical center ( http://www.stuttering.org ) specializing in the physically based treatment of stuttering, have developed a new stuttering therapy with advanced behavioral, electronic and computer technologies that significantly improve the ease of learning and retaining fluent speech.

An estimated 66 million people worldwide suffer from the effects of stuttering, with three million living in the U.S., according to the National Institutes of Health. Stuttering occurs when speech muscles inappropriately contract and "jump out of control" with too much force and abruptness during attempts to speak. Markers of stuttering include repetitions of sounds, syllables and words; prolongations of first sounds in syllables; and voice blockage when trying to talk. The condition can impair social growth, hinder education and career aspirations, and produce emotional scars that may last a lifetime.

HCRI's new stuttering therapy, Hollins Fluency Program: Advanced Speech Reconstruction for Stuttering(TM) (HFP), helps people who stutter learn how to replace faulty muscle contractions that cause stuttering with new muscle behaviors that generate fluent speech. By literally "reconstructing" muscle actions that drive movements of the tongue, lip, jaw, soft palette, and vocal folds, individuals who stutter can acquire and sustain the ability to speak fluently.

Effective across a wide range of stuttering types and severities, HFP represents a meaningful alternative to existing treatments, ac
