Welcome to the UCSB Stuttering Treatment Clinic. The Clinic offers the MPI (Modifying Phonation Intervals) Stuttering Treatment Program for the treatment of chronic stuttering in adults and adolescents. The Clinic is a division of UCSB's Department of Speech and Hearing Sciences.
The MPI stuttering treatment is based on the many years of research by UCSB Speech and Hearing Professor Dr. Roger J. Ingham and colleagues. After a lengthy period of basic research and clinical trials the MPI Program emerged and was tested in Phase II clinical trials with NIH support. The results of these trials will be published shortly. They show that the program is very effective in achieving sustained and durable fluency with clients who meet a series of assessment criteria. For that reason the program is now being made available at the UCSB Stuttering Treatment Clinic for adults and adolescents with chronic developmental stuttering who meet these criteria.
The MPI program is now offered by Logera Solutions GmbH, a company co-founded by Prof. Ingham in 2013. Visit http://mpi-stuttering-treatment.com/ for more details.
Located on the beautiful campus of UCSB, the Stuttering Treatment Clinic helps stutterers with chronic developmental stuttering eliminate their stuttering with the proprietary MPI (Modifying Phonation Intervals) stuttering treatment.
Our qualified Speech-Language Pathologist (SLP) manages each client's MPI treatment program which is divided into three phases: Establishment, Transfer, and Maintenance. Once treatment is complete, most clients achieve natural-sounding stutter-free speech.
