Designed to enhance the speech therapy session. The fluency game will help the person who stutters go foward with his speech and "just do it"--that is, just go for speech. It will bring the stuttering out in the open and help the person who stutters learn to accept himself for who he is. This helps the person who stutters desensitze himself and to learn there is nothing to be ashamed of. By bringing the stuttering out in the open, more confidence will follow. By letting go of the fear, the person who stutters reduces the emotions that trigger the lack of fluency. Instead o9f giving into stress, shame, guilt, fear, and embarrassment, the person who stutters will go foward with speech with acceptance and develop a better attitude, self-confidence, and enthusiasm.
