The Department of Speech Language Studies has a dedicated unit for stuttering and other fluency disorders. Fluency disorders include developmental stuttering, normal non fluency, cluttering, and neurogenic stuttering. In fluency disorders, forward flow of speech is interrupted due to multiple reasons. An individual with a fluency disorder requires fluency shaping or stuttering modification techniques as well as counselling to build motivation and confidence.
Our fluency unit offers:
- Assessment for children and adults with fluency disorders to identify the nature, type, onset, etiology, characteristics of their problem and to differentiate it from other communication disorders.
- Management for children and adults based on the diagnosis using fluency shaping and stuttering modification techniques. Instruments and apps are used when appropriate.
- Individual and group therapy for children and adults
- Teletherapy for fluency disorders.
- Counselling and education of individuals with fluency disorders, their parents, and caretakers.
- Information dissemination through print and social media to spread awareness
