"You have been on my mind many
times over the past few years, and I just wanted to drop you a quick
I was a client for a short period around 2007. You made such a
difference in my life. Not just my speech, but my attitude about myself.
I just wanted to say thank you. You do such wonderful work, have such a
wonderful attitude and because you truly understand people who stutter,
have a profound impact on people’s lives."

"We continued once a week for several months, then began once a
month, and are now, about 20 months after starting, essentially
stutter-free. While this is a bit of a disappointment to Katy as she
enjoyed her time with Darrell so much, I am obviously thrilled! Now
months after our last meeting, she continues to use strategies she
learned with Darrell when she comes across a word that is difficult—
I find this incredible.
"I believe that Darrell Dodge is the
most compassionate, qualified, and dedicated person that I could have found
to help Katy. I would recommend him to anyone I know without hesitation."

"We chose Mr. Darrell Dodge
because his philosophy mirrored our own: treatment
needs to deal with speech fluency as well as the emotional self.
Here was someone who could reach our son on a
level that we could not. For a year they worked together and we now have a
happy, confident, young man ready to enter college."
- Gloria P.
"Mr. Dodge's kind and patient manner
coupled with his vast knowledge of speech therapy has acted as a
catalyst in assisting our child to improve his speech abilities. He has
been instrumental in helping our son speak fluently."

"The Child and Adolescent Stuttering Treatment and Activity Resource
Guide is a gold mine of therapy techniques and activities in which to teach
them. The authors' clinical experiences shine through in their clear explanations of
why, when, and how to employ a multitude of tools to increase fluency and make
stuttering easier and more like normal

* Please note that complete fluency can never be guaranteed for
any form of stuttering therapy. While very young children may
often completely recover their fluency, research has shown that
it is rare for this to occur for children who stutter beyond the
age of 5-6, and even more rare for teens or adults. Successful
therapy usually results in an increased ability to manage
stuttering and dramatically decrease its negative effect on a
person's life, health, and happiness.
