Kay M. Monkhouse, Ph.D., CCC-SLP, is a specialist in stuttering, accent reduction, voice disorders and myofunctional therapy. She has over 25 years of postdoctoral clinical experience in effective communication (presentation skills) and speech language pathology. She has been licensed in Australia and in the United States (Connecticut, New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania). She holds a Certificate of Clinical Competence from the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association.
Born in Australia, Dr. Monkhouse obtained her Ph.D. at the University of Iowa. She has taught at 5 major U.S. Colleges and Universities, and has established a Private Practice, Kay M. Monkhouse, Ph.D., Speech Language Pathologists, with locations in Radnor, Pennsylvania and Princeton, New Jersey. This practice is eclectic, providing evaluations and treatment for adults and children with all Speech-Language pathologies, including stuttering, delayed language development and disorders, articulation, accent reduction, voice disorders and myofunctional therapy for tongue thrust.

Stuttering Institute of Princeton was established as a direct outcome of Dr. Monkhouse's increasing interest in fluency disorders (stuttering, cluttering, and presentation anxiety), and her growing demand locally and internationally as a speaker on the role of DAF (delayed auditory feedback) in her treatment model of fluency acquisition.

Dr. Monkhouse has presented on her MSAM (Monkhouse Skills Acquisition Model) and DAF in Washington, D.C., New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Alburquerque, New Mexico (at the 9th Annual Stuttering Leadership Conference), at the Oxford Disfluency Conference at Oxford University in England, at conferences at the Gold Coast, Brisbane, and Hobart in Australia, in Johannesburg, South Africa, and most recently at the Third World Congress of the International Fluency Association in Montreal, Canada.

She was elected to the initial cadre of Board Recognized Fluency Specialists in November, 2000. Her treatment methods have incorporated both fluency shaping and stuttering modification, and are focused on the individual needs of her clients who stutter.

As a Stuttering Specialist, Dr. Monkhouse was approached by Janus Development Group, Inc. of Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania, to join their network of SpeechEasy™ providers, and was appointed as Northern New Jersey's provider of the SpeechEasy™ device.

Stuttering Institute of Princeton continues to offer a variety of traditional therapeutic methods of stuttering intervention, including individual fluency evaluations, graduated short-term or long-term treatment sessions and intensive programs. Recommendations for treatment options are based on evaluation results and the individual needs of each client. The SpeechEasy™ provides an exciting new addition to these traditional methods for selected clients, and has been shown to facilitate and solidify the fluency-enhancing effects of many other treatment programs.
