During the assessment, the speech therapist will take a case history of you/your child to gain a better understanding of the concerns. A video or audio recording may be done in clinic to help with the diagnosis and treatment process.You may want to bring along some home recordings (video or audio) to best represent your/your child’s speech and language abilities. These can be viewed during the assessment. During the assessment, there will be ample opportunity to give you information about your/your child’s condition, to clarify your thoughts and discuss treatment approaches available.

Group therapy involves 2 or more patients having therapy together. Care and sensitivity is taken to match patients based on their speech and language goals, age and personality.The benefits of group therapy are that patients can work on generalisation of speech skills, brainstorm ideas and find support in each other.

 

Intensives
We offer intensive treatment for stuttering for more mature school-aged children, adolescents and adults. The intensive programs cater to patients who are undergoing treatment with the Camperdown Program. This is offered to those who are new to learning the speech strategies or to those who have relapsed and need a refresher.  The intensive sessions range from a half- day session to a 4-day intensive.  There will be compulsory follow-up sessions as well. This is to ensure the maintenance of the speech progress made.

 

Real World Experience
DSCF1300 Kate orderingIt is crucial that patients experience how to use their strategies in day to day situations. The clinic can be an “artificial” environment where it is free from noise and distractions. Hence it is important that patients are given a chance to practice their strategies in different settings and with different people.The clinic is situated in the heart of Bedok and allows ample opportunity to practice and transfer the learnt skills. This is done with care and under close collaboration with the patient/caregiver to give a positive confidence-building experience.

 

Telehealth
Stuttering treatment is also available via SKYPE™.  Telehealth treatment can be accessed from home or workplace. Studies have shown that telehealth treatment is just as effective as compared to treatment in the clinic setting.

Home Therapy
Home therapy sessions are available and are typically 1 hour long. Please contact us for further information.
