Freedom to Speak

What is Freedom to Speak?

Freedom to Speak is a specialized speech therapy practice designed specifically for people with disorders of fluency; most commonly, stuttering and cluttering.

Treatment Philosophy

 Stuttering is a complex, multidimensional problem. Because of this and the breadth of stuttering symptoms, it requires an individualized treatment plan that is tailored to the needs of each individual. Ms. Cochrane incorporates the most recent research findings in creating and developing an effective therapy plan, made specifically for each client and family.  Modification of how stuttering is viewed and how one thinks about himself as a speaker, as well as deliberately implementing small changes to  speech production, creates a confidence necessary for powerful communicative interactions.  

Freedom to Speak has two offices.  One in New York State in the town of Honeoye, 30 miles south of Rochester in the Finger Lakes region of upstate New York and the second, in Cape Coral, Florida; serving the people of southwest Florida.
