Freedom to Speak

freeing voices, one at a time

Welcome to Freedom to Speak. We specialize in services for those who stutter through treatment, education, and consultations.

Empowering People

For those who stutter, even life's simplest challenges can feel overwhelming. Our goal is to change that by providing knowledge, skills and building resilience.

Changing Lives

Feeling valued and respected is an important part of everyone's life. And when each day is a struggle just to be heard, those feelings can seem even further out of reach. We want to help you bridge those gaps and build stronger connections with those around you.

Building Confidence

Building your confidence doesn't have to feel like a mystery. In fact, its pretty simple. Confidence is born out of success and empowerment. The more wins you have, the easier it is to have faith in your ability.
