regarding our work and stuttering therapy program.
Pioneers in Stuttering Therapy
HCRI was the first to demonstrate that stuttering is physically based and introduced behavioral stuttering treatment nearly 40 years ago. Since that time, our researchers have continually tested and refined our therapy to deliver one of the most advanced, results-based stuttering treatment programs in the world.
World-Class Clinical Quality
HCRI's behavioral stuttering treatment is comprehensive, systematic, and quality-controlled to maximize fluency outcomes. Our expert clinicians administer therapy with precision and care. Moreover, our proprietary treatment tools and technology help make your fluency learning easier and long lasting.
Therapy that Transforms Lives
HCRI's fluency training program has enhanced the lives of thousands of people who stutter. Research shows 93% of clients acquire fluent speech in 12 days and 70-75% retain fluency for the long term. Now, let us help you open new doors of opportunity that come with fluent speech.
Ongoing Therapy Innovation
HCRI is unique in that work focuses on conducting objective research and developing new treatment methods, as well as administering therapy. Our findings drive continual improvements to the therapy process, increasing the sophistication, practicality, and probability of personal success in treatment.
Exceptionally Skilled Clinicians
HCRI clinicians treat more people who stutter in one year than most speech professionals treat in a lifetime. Extensively trained and compassionate, our therapists are uniquely qualified to guide you on the path to fluency during treatment – and are always available by phone once you return home.
