Clients Speak Their Mind
We reached out to Amy for help with our 2-year-old son Alfie who at the time who was showing no signs of speech development. He was getting very frustrated, screaming a lot at ear piercing levels as he wasn’t able to communicate. We chose to work with Amy as she came highly recommended and after an initial consultation, we felt that she was a great fit for Alfie. We felt that she would work with him on his terms. In fact, she came into our house and started working with Alfie and our family as a whole showing us all how we could help him develop his speech. In a matter of months, we saw vast progress. She was able to tap into Alfie, gain his trust, and help him learn at his pace with minimal frustration. After 10 months, Alfie had caught up with other 3-year-old's speech development, which was amazing. Without her we wouldn’t have had the tools to help him, and we feel enormous gratitude towards her as she helped open him up to the world. We would recommend Amy to anyone looking for help with their child’s speech development. Her approach in helping us as a family teach and encourage Alfie is what was needed to get through to him.

The National Association of Young People Who Stutter
This is an incredible organization that provides resources and schedules meet-ups and conferences for children who stutter and their families. Attending these conferences and meetings is a wonderful way for your child to meet other children who stutter. If your child continues to stutter, I HIGHLY recommend going to one of the conferences or Friends events. It is incredibly powerful for a child who stutters to meet fellow children who stutter to gain a sense of “I am not alone.” It can also be very therapeutic for parents to attend support groups and meet other parents of children who stutter.
A Non-Profit Organization Helping Those Who Stutter
The mission of the Stuttering Foundation is to educate the public and provide no-cost and low-cost resources about stuttering. They have an incredibly informative website with many downloadable resources. They also sell books, pamphlets, posters, etc.
The National Stuttering Association
The NSA is the largest non-profit organization in the world dedicated to bringing hope and empowerment to children and adults who stutter, their families, and professionals, through support, education, advocacy, and research.
The NSA holds free group meetings run for and by people who stutter. This self-help model is an excellent option for adults instead of speech therapy. Stutter loud and stutter proud.
This website contains invaluable information for parents seeking resources to help their late talkers. I use many of Laura Mize's techniques in my language therapy sessions with young children.
Books & Resources
The primary message young children get in stuttering therapy is that they can and should manage their speech -- in other words, try to not sutter -- by utilizing speech tools and techniques. Is it possible that the anxiety this causes can create an even greater burden? Can that burden lead to excessive silence and disengagement -- a far greater handicap than the stuttering itself? Through personal narrative and extensive research, Voice Unearthed answers these questions with a resounding "yes!" It also includes practical guidance that helps keep children talking, while minimizing everyone's anxiety around communicating. Voice Unearthed frees us from the pointless, painful chore of counting speech errors and reminds us to keep our eyes on what truly matters. It's also a wake-up call for parents, professionals, and the entire field of speech therapy -- and a reminder to "first do no harm."

How to Talk so Little Kids Will Listen: A Survival Guide to Life with Children Ages 2-7
This user-friendly guide will empower parents and caregivers of young children to forge rewarding, joyful relationships with terrible two-year-olds, truculent three-year-olds, ferocious four-year-olds, foolhardy five-year-olds, self-centered six-year-olds, and the occasional semi-civilized seven-year-old. And, it will help little kids grow into self-reliant big kids who are cooperative and connected to their parents, teachers, siblings, and peers.
Over her decades as a clinical psychologist, Dr. Mona Delahooke has routinely counseled distraught parents who struggle to manage their children’s challenging, sometimes oppositional behaviors. Behavior, no matter how challenging, is not the problem but a symptom; a clue about what is happening in a child’s unique physiologic makeup.
In Brain-Body Parenting, Dr. Delahooke offers a radical new approach to parenting based on her clinical experience as well as the most recent research in neuroscience and child psychology. Instead of a “top-down” approach to behavior that focuses on the thinking brain, she calls for a “bottom-up” approach that considers the essential role of the entire nervous system, which produces children’s feelings and behaviors.
