Great Fluency Kit
Taylor,Port Orchard, WA

#FCF99-Focus on Fluency™

This kit has been a great addition to my fluency materials. I work with elementary and middle school students and the content in this kit have been adaptable for these different grade levels. Overall, I am happy I purchased it.

#FCF99-Focus on Fluency™

I studied under Barry Guitar, PhD, who wrote the textbook on Stuttering. After 14 years of making my own materials, I splurged on this and did not regret it for one second. It's perfect and totally worth the money.

Focus on Fluency for Fluency and More
Joanne S,Morristown, NJ

#FCF99-Focus on Fluency™

I just purchased Focus on Fluency. I had used this product very successfully in the past in the public schools; I bought it so that I can own it and use it in my private practice. This product, by ASHA Fluency Board certified specialist, Kristen Chmela, is a wonderful tool for working on fluency. It allows you to target all aspects of fluency, including education about the condition, desensitization, basic communication skills and fluency shaping/stuttering modification. While it is a wonderful tool for working on fluency, it also lends itself to other areas, as well. I have used the education tools to work on articulation. For example, using the Speech child in the "toolbox," I have taught any number of children HOW speech is produced. We have also played "Super Silly Speech" as an activity to teach children that they can change their speech (be it articulation or fluency). I cannot recommend this program highly enough!

#FCF99-Focus on Fluency™

I absolutely LOVE this product. I was surprised how many materials came in the package. My students love the interactive nature of this product. I've already used the weighted bean bag, which has helped my kiddos understand diaphragmatic breathing! Best product I have purchased from Super Duper!! I highly recommend this for every SLP.

Great approach to therapy!
Stacy S,,Austin, TX

#FCF99-Focus on Fluency™

I love using this kit as a tool to teach students about fluency. It includes some great information about strategies and also some great ideas for how to practice. My favorite part of the kit are the materials that focus on the speech machine and the presentation. The students love it!

#FCF99-Focus on Fluency™

I am a pediatric SLP who frequently works with fluency patients. I recently purchased this kit and have found it extremely helpful to explain the physiology of speech and teach stuttering modifications. Also, the workbook is great for home program materials.

Awesome Toolkit!
Katrina L.,Rochester, MN

#FCF99-Focus on Fluency™

I love this toolkit! The visuals (e.g., speech machine) and toolkit cards are great. I borrowed a friend's older version of this product, and this newer one is even better! I especially like the decision-making guide at the beginning of each strategy to help you decide whether or not your student may benefit from learning about that speech strategy. Definitely worth the investment!

Great Curriculum for Fluency
Sara H.,Temecula, CA

#FCF99-Focus on Fluency™

This is a comprehensive curriculum for k-8th grade. I love the desensitization piece. It is hard to think of ways for student to accept and identify with their stuttering. The desensitization portion of this product helps break it down into steps for students (and SLPs:)

Extremely Satisfied.
Nicole A.,Grinnell, IA

#FCF99-Focus on Fluency™

I am a new SLP working in an elementary school setting. I recently added a new student with fluency concerns. I realized I didn't have sufficient materials to work with this student. I ordered Focus on Fluency, and I am so glad that I did. When I received it I found that it has everything I could possibly need to target fluency. I would recommend this to any SLP.

#FCF99-Focus on Fluency™

My students love Focus on Fluency. This program is easy to follow, has sturdy props that are visually exciting to the kiddos, and is simple to use. I really enjoy how the program is broken down into 5 different groups (education, desensitization, basic communication, fluency shaping, and stuttering modification). Overall, this is a great kit!!!

Focus on Fluency
Tawni M.,Seattle, WA

#FCF99-Focus on Fluency™

This is probably my favorite Super Duper product! It is a well thought out, high quality, fun and interactive, easy to use, & progressive program to put school agers through. I run a private practice and I only wish there were something of this caliber for preschoolers, whom I see several stutterers at that age, and this program is a little too complex for them.

A log of bang for your buck
Jackie,Quincy, MA

#FCF99-Focus on Fluency™

I wish I could give this program 10 stars! This is definitely the best fluency program I've ever seen, and it may be the best Super Duper product I've ever bought! It's comprehensive-it addresses all aspects of fluency therapy, and brings the explanations and practice down to a kid's level. Great for pragmatics too!

#FCF99-Focus on Fluency™

This is a great fluency kit...very well organized and user friendly. It addresses the students' attitudes toward stuttering more than some of the other fluency programs. I combine this with Color Me Fluent for my complete fluency therapy needs.

Excellent Product!
Billie M.,Charleston, WV

#FCF99-Focus on Fluency™

Focus on Fluency is a wonderful kit that puts all the important aspects of fluency therapy right at your fingertips! It covers education and basic communication skills which is really important but often is overlooked in other fluency therapy programs. Great for kids school-aged kids!

#FCF99-Focus on Fluency™

This fluency kit is very well organized and user friendly. I have been so impressed with how easily I can access the materials for any target area I need. My students are really enjoying the activities and learning so much. They are very attracted to the graphics and material designs. The relaxation exercises have been especially helpful to a couple of my students.

A worthwhile purchase
Lisa B.,Hudson Valley, New York

#FCF99-Focus on Fluency™

I just purchased Focus on Fluency, a Toolkit for Creative Therapy to update my fluency materials for use with a newly identified 1st grader who is severly dysfluent. This program provides a user friendly guide to each component of the kit(Education, Desentatization, Basic Communication, Stuttering Modification, and Fluency Shaping). The kit comes in a large open shelf box with four cardboard drawers for the components of the kit. So far I have used the Education Component to educate my student about speaking and his own speech. His response to My Speech Machine (a poster with magnetic components - diaphragm, lungs, voice box, tongue etc.) and the Super Silly Speech board game have been very positive. The kit appears to be pretty sturdy and durable. I suggest laminating the cards for added durability. Nice product.

This is a perfect helper for the SLP's starting out with working with children with fluency problems. It's friendly instructions and building steps allows the student to have fun while learning to reduce stuttering. I use the focus on fluency over and over.

#FCF99-Focus on Fluency™

I loved using the Focus on Fluency program! It provided a great structure for planning each lesson and a step-by-step guide to assist me in this area that I am new at working with. I would highly recommend it, especially for the newer clinician, but I know it would also be a good resource for the seasoned clinician as well.

#FCF99-Focus on Fluency™

I enjoy your products and love your language games/activities. I would like more interactive products and language stimulating toys for early childhood. I work with many pre-kindergarten students and would benefit from a larger variety of products for children at this age. I love the fluency enhancing tools and the Magne Talk activities.

A Winner!
Julie R,Muskegon, MI

#FCF99-Focus on Fluency™

I have been working with Focus on Fluency for the past year. I love the organization and layout of the program materials. The best part of Focus on Fluency is that not only have I used the material with children who stutter, I have also been able to use some of the ideas for children who have other communication issues. I have spent time this year teaching children with articulation and other oral motor difficulties about the “speech machine”. I have also been able to use components of the program to focus on social communication skills such as eye contact, turn-taking, and wait time. Practicing these skills has helped my speech groups run more efficiently all year long. Thanks Super Duper and Kristin Chmela for the fantastic product, can’t wait to see what else you will develop!
