Adults who stutter may experience social anxiety because of their speech. iGlebe is a cognitive behaviour therapy program designed especially for stuttering.
iGlebe is a standalone treatment—you can do it yourself without any assistance from a clinical psychologist or a speech-language pathologist.
iGlebe was developed at the Australian Stuttering Research Centre with funding from the National Health and Medical Research Council of Australia.
Clinical trials have shown that iGlebe can be effective, and you can find out about those clinical trials below.
