Fluency apps


I have read an article from this conference about a client using a fluency app during their time in speech therapy. I am wondering what your thoughts are on the use of fluency apps for individuals who stutter? Also are there some apps that may be better than others or is it more dependent on the individual’s needs? As a currently speech-language pathology graduate student, I am interested in knowing what technology may be helpful for individuals who stutter.

Thank you for your thoughts.
