We think this is one of the finest programs in the country
and even in the world for adolescent and adults who stutter.
- Jane Fraser, President Stuttering Foundation of America

GO TO THE SSMP! These are not “fluency” programs. In fact the desperation for fluency is what keeps it unattainable. Learning to be comfortable stuttering is the key to managing your speech.
Fluency is a bi-product.
- Sam Gordon, Artist, NYC
