SpeechEasy® Fluency Device
Reduce Stuttering

Wolfson Children's Hospital and Baptist Health are Northeast Florida's regional provider for the advanced SpeechEasy® fluency device for children, adolescents and adults who stutter. The SpeechEasy device is a treatment option that is worn similar to a hearing aid, using Altered Auditory Feedback. However, unlike hearing aids, rather than amplify sound, SpeechEasy devices use a system of Altered Auditory Feedback (AAF) to recreate and optimize the choral effect.

How does it work?
When someone wears a SpeechEasy device and speaks, their words are digitally replayed in their ear with a very slight delay and frequency modification. As a result, the brain perceives that it is speaking in unison with another person. This perception of "speaking in unison" creates the "choral effect", thus becoming a stuttering treatment that can reduce or even eliminate stuttering. These fluency devices are a small and inconspicuous treatment option that may help people who stutter experience a heightened sense of confidence, freedom and self-reliance that comes from being able to communicate more effectively.
