School Aged Program Information
The Speech and Stuttering Institute offers weekly individual and group treatment programs for school aged children 5 years of age and up. All children are seen for an assessment prior to their enrollment in one of the programs to determine which program is best suited to your child’s needs. Treatment is offered on weekdays during regular business hours, Wednesday evenings and Saturdays. Telepractice sessions are an option for clients in Ontario living a significant distance from the clinic.
Our 5-9 year old treatment programs generally run for 16 weeks. The children participate in group treatment (2 children per group) for 1 hour per week or individual treatment for 45 minutes per week. Caregivers attend the program with their children and home exercises are provided each week.
Our 10-14 year old treatment programs generally run for 25 weeks (21 weeks of weekly treatment and 4 follow up sessions). The children participate in group treatment for 1.5 hours per week or individual treatment for 45 minutes to 1 hour per week. Home exercises are provided each week.

School Aged Summer Program Information
During the month of July, we typically offer a 3 week summer fluency program for children 10-14 years old. The children participate in half-days of group treatment for three weeks, Monday through Friday. Half-days provide children time to practice their skills. Follow up sessions are scheduled throughout the school year.
We also continue to offer our regular 5-9 year old weekly treatment programs throughout the summer months.
