Before and After
Janice is native Alaskan and did not have therapy available to her. Her stuttering had an affect on all aspects of her life. She made major lifestyle changes.
Max was largely a covert stutter with a fair amount of fluent speech. He would rate his stuttering problem as severe a most other stutterers as he had to devote so much effort in attempting to hide and avoid stuttering.
Prior to therapy, Travis would frequently not talk. Many times his stuttering blocks would be so long and frustrating that he would give up on what he wanted to say.
As a young adult, Dmitriy manages his stuttering very well, does not avoid any speaking situation, has greatly reduce his fears, and has a healthy self image.
