Hollins Fluency System - The HCRI Stuttering Therapy Program

The Hollins Fluency System II: Advanced Speech Reconstruction for Stuttering™ is HCRI's third-generation therapy program. This powerful, proprietary stuttering treatment system incorporates our latest research findings, technology and training methods to significantly improve the learning and retention of fluent speech.

Only offered at HCRI, the Hollins Fluency System II replaces our earlier therapies, the Precision Fluency Shaping Program, and the previous generation of our Hollins Fluency System.

How Therapy Works

Hollins Fluency System II 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 achieve and sustain the ability to speak fluently.

In this latest generationof HCRI stuttering treatment, we have:

  • Incorporated new knowledge of muscle movement targets that actively generate fluent speech for each sound class in our language. These changes have strengthened the core of the therapy system.
  • Improved computer-based training techniques through which fluency skills are learned, making it easier for clients to understand, learn, and maintain the details of muscle movements that produce fluent speech.
  • Added sophisticated performance tracking tools that help clinicians quantitatively evaluate and guide each individual's stuttering therapy progress and treatment needs.
  • Developed and introduced the use of HCRI´s proprietary iPhone/iPod Touch app during therapy to help program participants more easily transfer new fluency skills from the clinical setting into real-life situations.
  • Created the new Hollins Fluency Program using a web-based format, paving the way to explore remote access, quality controlled treatment for stuttering anywhere there is an internet connection.

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

  • 90-93% achieve fluency by the end of their 12-day fluency-skill training program.
  • 70-75% retain fluency when evaluated one and again two years post therapy.

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.
