Refresher Programs

The Speech & Stuttering Institute conducts refresher programs throughout the year which are open to all graduates of our fluency programs.  Refresher programs provide individuals with the opportunity to re-establish fluency skills in the context of large group review sessions.  The Institute typically offers an adult weekend refresher in early December and a one week advanced adult refresher in either April or June.  A pre-teen/teen refresher is offered during March Break.

At other times of the year, former clients (of any age) requiring additional support may contact the Institute to set up individual review sessions.  These sessions can be conducted in person or via video conference.

Watch this video to see four of our Fluency Plus Program graduates discuss the value of our adult weekend refresher program for them and why it was worth the travel to Toronto to attend.   Truly an inspiration for all!
