"Judy was able to form a wonderful relationship with my teenage son, gain his confidence and trust, and help him overcome his stuttering. Judy really understands helping the whole person, and the emotional landscape that is part of the speech challenges. Her therapy is not just about how to speak clearly, but how to understand yourself. He worked very hard, and followed her program, meeting regularly with her and practicing daily. In a matter of a few months, his world had changed.
Now, six months after we started with Judy, he is very comfortable with his friends, being social, participating in class and speaking in front of groups. He explains that his whole world has changed. He had figured that he would always have the speech problem and just have to live with that.
“He is thrilled to have a whole new outlook on his life and future.
I recommend Judy for anyone who wants to speak more clearly and have confidence in themselves. She is warm, inviting and supportive, and has a truly brilliant program”
A Happy Mom
I worked with Judy for about a year. I had (and still have) a mild stutter. But what you really learn there are mechanisms to control it. It's really up to you to apply them or not, default pattern of the speach will probably always stay with you, but you would learn another one. It takes time and effort to establish and maintain this pattern. Daily practice is required, ideally hours of controlled speach using the basic techique and minimizing the time when you are upset/angry/pressed and cannot control it.
