HCRI Stuttering Therapy: Hollins Fluency System III

HCRI's new therapy program release is called Hollins Fluency System III: High Definition Speech Reconstruction for Stuttering™. This powerful, proprietary stuttering treatment system incorporates our latest research findings, technology and training methods to significantly improve your ability to learn and retain fluent speech.

Grounded in science, Hollins Fluency System III is the most sophisticated of the stuttering therapies we have developed. It replaces our previous versions of the Hollins Fluency System and the Precision Fluency Shaping Program. Featuring "high definition" as a descriptor in the program name highlights the exceptional level of detail that defines how HCRI stuttering therapy is structured, delivered and measured to be consistently effective.

With this next-generation stuttering therapy, fluency skills are easier to learn and maintain. You benefit from more exacting definitions of speech behaviors that produce fluency and greater specificity in therapy instruction sets.

The latest findings in speech-signal analysis are incorporated into therapy to provide you with precise speech measurement and instant, highly accurate feedback on your progress. This facilitates strong voice-control learning that drives the acquisition and retention of your fluency skills. The immediacy of real-time speech data also accelerates the transfer of new speaking capabilities from HCRI's clinical setting to real-world environments.


How Therapy Works

Hollins Fluency System III will help you 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, you can achieve and sustain the ability to speak fluently.

During HCRI’s 12-day stuttering therapy program, specially trained clinicians work one-on-one with you to instruct, evaluate and guide you through each required step in the stuttering treatment system. The use of proprietary computer software and a mobile app during therapy help make fluency acquisition faster and long lasting. Post-therapy clinical support and a comprehensive package of practice tools help keep you on track with fluency throughout your life

No other stuttering treatment replicates the sophistication of the Hollins Fluency System II therapy program - or the individualized approach from which clients benefit.

Treatment Results

  • 93% achieve fluency by the end of their 12-day therapy program
  • 70-75% retain fluency when evaluated one and again two years post therapy


Other Post-Therapy Impact

In addition to fluency achievement, past therapy participants reported the following in a recent survey.

  • 79% said their personal happiness and satisfaction increased after participating in HCRI stuttering therapy.
  • 69% said they improved their social life and relationships after their HCRI experience.
  • 84% reported increased confidence post therapy.
  • 78% said HCRI therapy participation helped enhance their quality of life.


For many HCRI clients, stuttering therapy is a one-time experience; fluent speech has replaced stuttering and additional treatment is not necessary. Yet, to achieve lasting fluency, you must commit to working hard during therapy and practicing the skills you learned when you return home. At the same time, you'll receive personalized clinician follow-up and support, as well as a full array of post-therapy tools to help you maintain fluent speech for the long-term.

The HCRI Difference

HCRI is recognized as a leader in stuttering therapy. We developed the first comprehensive behavioral stuttering treatment, as well as the first speech measurement and feedback system for therapy. We continually research and upgrade our treatment program, based on new discoveries and technology, to make fluency learning easier and more sustainable. As a result, you benefit by participating in one of the most advanced, results-based therapy programs available.

For 40 years, we’ve researched and treated stuttering, made presentations around the globe, trained therapists across the U.S., and partnered with national agencies on stuttering research. We’ve helped more than 6,100 people, representing all types and severities of stuttering. We have the experience and know how to help you on the path to fluency.

HCRI’s treatment is comprehensive, systematic, and quality-controlled. We test every detail of the therapy process, and have systems to ensure treatment reliability. This includes having HCRI clinicians participate in 500 extra hours of customized training. These stringent standards ensure you achieve the best possible therapy outcomes.

HCRI stuttering therapy has enhanced the lives of thousands of people who stutter. Research shows 90-93% of clients acquire fluent speech in 12 days and 70-75% retain fluency when evaluated one and again two years post therapy. You can expect similar results if you give 100% to the therapy process.

Our extensive post-therapy tools and support are unmatched. Examples include our computer-based FluencyNet system, monthly video tips, HCRI reunions, fluency practice groups, and a free iPhone app that serves as a clinician in your pocket. Of course, we are always available by phone, email and Skype to offer assistance. At HCRI, we are your partner in fluency for life.

Stuttering has enormous personal cost in the form of lost opportunities at work, school and socially. Therapy also comes at a price − but therapies are not created equally. The hourly cost of HCRI’s therapy program, which totals 100 hours over 12-days, is less than half the national average. Plus, HCRI provides a high probability of a positive, lasting outcome. All things considered, HCRI represents one of the best therapy values available – and financing is available.
