Teletherapy for stuttering – intensive, online stuttering treatment

The first teletherapy in the world for those who stutter has been offered by the Kassel Stuttering Therapy since July 2015. This innovative project was developed together with the Techniker Krankenkasse health insurance scheme and the PARLO Institute for Research and Training in Speech Therapy.

Patients are treated in intensive online courses in a virtual treatment room over a period of one year by specially trained therapists online in their own homes. The concept foresees both individual and group sessions and is aimed at young people and adults who stutter and who are members of Techniker Krankenkasse.

The online stuttering therapy is scientifically advised and evaluated by the PARLO Institute for Research and Training in Speech Therapy. The first provisional results are expected in autumn 2016.

Further information on the first intensive, online stuttering treatment is available at www.teletherapie-stottern.de.
