Lidcombe Program for Early Childhood/Preschool Stuttering (ages 3 to 7)
How can the Lidcombe Stuttering Program help your child?
The Lidcombe Program is a highly successful evidenced based behavioral treatment program that was designed for young children who stutter and their families. The objective of this program is to try and eliminate stuttering in young children in a fun, systematic and structured manner. Therapy is provided to the child by Lori Melnitsky, Lidcombe Certified speech pathologist with over 20 years experience in stuttering/fluency therapy. Parents are taught to work with their children daily to decrease stuttering. Parents will feel empowered helping their child speak more fluently. Lori has added a coaching part to this program which is highly positive and effective.
This program is ideal for children ages 2.5 to 8. In order for children to improve fluency at this age parents must use a structured approach and be involved daily. It is important to address stuttering early and NOT to wait. We can help your child to try and stop stuttering!
