    I have heard of a technique called “release out” for children who stutter to practice. what is that technique?

      Hi Joan, sounds like a pull-out to me. A pull-out is a technique that we regularly teach our clients. Its a stuttering modification technique where a person freezes a moment of stuttering, identifies the location of the tension, and then gradually releases the tension.
