What is "ease" in speech therapy?

Ease includes any activity that focuses on skill or proficiency. Anything that requires “practice” typically falls in this category. This includes common interventions like working on rate of speech, voice or fluency techniques, or anything relating to reducing struggle.

Ease is connected to two outcomes (Cs): confidence and competence.

Confidence (ease x empowerment) occurs when you can consistently execute a skill and are able to adapt to environmental challenges. You might not be perfect, but you’re able to get up and continue on if you’ve been knocked down.

Competence (ease x education) occurs when you know what you are doing and why you are doing it; you are proficient enough to produce the desired result consistently.
