Hello, My initial focus would be reducing SHAME of stuttering in a very simple way by commenting that it is "OK to Have Bumps in Your Speech". Then, I would try to slow rate of speech by using modeling and increasing pause time. Teaching modification could be difficult because of cognition issues. I have not recommended that. Thank you.
