The MPI -2 Stuttering Treatment Program is the latest development in effective stuttering therapies for adults and teenagers. MPI (Modifying Phonation Intervals) Program is suitable for adults and teenagers. Below are the results of recent graduates:
As a result of many years of research by UC Santa Barbara Professor, Dr. Roger Ingham, this innovative treatment program is available now. Therefore, this program was developed by extensive research and studies found that by decreasing the client’s Short Phonation Intervals (or voicing), the longer voicing intervals are increased – reducing stuttering. Consequently, most clients achieve durable and natural-sounding fluent speech.
The goal of the Establishment Phase is for the client to achieve stutter-free and natural sounding speech within the clinic. This is accomplished by using the MPI app on an iPad or iPhone that trains the client to reduce short interval phonations and eliminate stuttering while still sounding natural. The establishment phase takes place in the clinic and lasts approximately two weeks. Finally, the client learns to talk without stuttering in a conversation for five minutes with the clinician.
The aim of the Transfer Phase is for the client to transfer the same stutter-free and natural sounding speech established within the clinic to outside of the clinic. This is accomplished with real-world speaking assignments (i.e. talking on the phone, to a person, etc) and recording the conversation with an iPad or iPhone device. Then, clients upload the recordings to the clinic with the MPI app. Then, the clinician evaluates the performance of the clients.
The purpose of the Maintenance Phase is to maintain the progress achieved in the Transfer Phase while gradually reducing the client from the formal speaking tasks. So this phase is completed in approximately one year and is monitored weekly by the clinician in online sessions.
