Over 70 million people worldwide stutter. Learning this statistic makes us eager to support those who stutter and there is no better time like the present! Check out these easy (and fun!) ways you can give back, too:

You’re probably wondering to yourself...why should I try Speechagain? How is it different from therapy I’ve tried in the past? Well, I’m here to tell you. As you know, stuttering is a unique type of communication disorder. It cannot be “cured”, but there are multiple therapy approaches that all claim to be effective.
