What Our Alumni Say

More than 6,300 people have completed our therapy program since our doors first opened in 1972. It is an illuminating experience to attend our annual reunions and meet our alumni who have been fluent speakers for the last 20 to 30 years. The HCRI experience has had a profound effect on so many of those who have participated.

I didnít understand the idea of fluency targets at first. LuAnn was patient in explaining each target to me and made sure that I was practicing the right way. Finally I got it and I am a fluent person.
I can say my name any time I want to!
I work in a customer service center and handle lots of telephone calls every day. Without Hollins I could never have done it.
Iím a computer programmer. The people at Hollins have done a terrific job of making computers work effectively to improve the quality of therapy. Their work with electronics in therapy is outstanding!! I love what they do!!
My stuttering pattern was unusual, according to my old therapists who didnít help me. At Hollins, they knew what to do about it and I speak fluently.
Now I have real freedom of speech!
When I first called HCRI, I stuttered badly during the call. After treatment, I called to thank them and spoke fluently.
I got the job I wanted, now that I can talk and express my self easily.
I joined Toastmasters and won a regional speaking event.
After Hollins, I became involved in politics and successfully ran for office as a state legislator. Of course, my fluent speech made it all possible. Thanks HCRI.
I was good at learning languages. However, I stuttered badly, so badly in fact, that I actually broke my teeth during several different bouts of stuttering. I became a corporate trouble shooter after learning how to speak fluently at HCRI.
I tried other therapies. I thought HCRI probably did the same thing as other therapies. I finally woke up and decided to call Hollins. Now, after attending HCRI, I have the daily blessing of speech!

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 ‚Äď and financing is available.
