Lionel Logue was one of Australia’s earliest and more famous speech therapists (speech pathologist these days, at least in Australia), noted for his work with King George’s stutter. Techniques for therapy vary greatly these days, from more behavioural approaches, such as the Lidcombe Program for young children, to strategies, or altered speech patterns for adults. There are also support groups for adults, such as the Speakeasy Association who meet to practise speech strategies and public speaking.
In Australia, you can find a speech pathologist with an interest in treating stuttering through the find a speech pathologist function on the Speech Pathology Australia website. Early intervention is best – with the best outcomes for stuttering therapy using the Lidcombe program in the year before or the first year or so of school.
