Can speech therapy help an 18 year old stop stuttering?
(Boston, MA, USA)
I am an 18 year old with a mild stutter. It has never really affected me in life in a serious way, but it still annoys me when I occasionally can’t get that word out. Sometimes I’ll have days where I stutter more than others and days where I barely stutter at all. It also seems to be situational (stutter in certain situations more than others). Can a speech therapist help treat a stutter at 18? What are some ways I can stop stuttering at home?
