Speech Therapy for Pre-schoolers (ages 2‑6)

When a child begins to stutter, parents are often told “All kids stutter, it’s just a phase” or “Just give it some time. It will stop on its own.”

SAY provides comprehensive treatment to give each child the greatest level of success as research shows more children will stop stuttering with early intervention.

Therapy for pre-schoolers starts with a comprehensive evaluation to assess the needs of each child and family. Pre-school children typically receive therapy weekly in 30-minute sessions, with session frequency varying depending on specific therapy goals. Therapy is fully-tailored for each child, as well as their parents and caregivers to ensure high-quality education, support and counseling.


SAY Speech Therapy is charged at the rate of $150 per hour and all speech therapy is provided by a licensed Speech-Language Pathologist who is an expert in working with young people who stutter.

SAY offers sliding scale rates.
