$500 Discount For Your Video

Take $500 off the price of a SmallTalk if you send us twelve short videos of your stuttering and let us use them on this website.

Before you order send us three videos:

  • Reading Arthur the Young Rat.
  • Making a phone call to order a pizza.
  • Talking to a stranger for at least a minute.

Make the videos in a quiet place where we can hear your voice clearly. You can approach a stranger by saying, “I’m making a video about my stuttering. Can I talk to you?” Then you can ask questions such as,

  • “Do you know anyone who stutters?”
  • “Did you know that [a famous person] is a stutterer?”
  • “Are stutterers sexy?”

After you receive your SmallTalk make the same three videos. Then after a month of using your SmallTalk make the videos again with your SmallTalk, and then make the videos again without using your SmallTalk (carryover fluency).

Special Telephone Equipment Distribution Programs

STEDP map

These state programs have approved providing the Casa Futura Technologies Basic Fluency System to qualified residents:

The following states also have programs to provide special telephone equipment to individuals whose speech disability interferes with their ability to use telephones. However, these states don’t regularly buy devices from us. Some of these states provide our devices but buy through distributors so we’re unaware of the sales. In some of the smaller states no stutterer has ever asked for a device from their program. It’s possible that still other states have rules that we’re unaware of that prevent them from providing our devices. One of the following programs had to shut down temporarily due to the state’s budget crisis. In any case, if you live in one of the following states contact your program and request a Basic Fluency System. Say that it is an assistive telephone device for persons with speech disabilities. After you contact your state’s program call us and tell us what you were told. If required we will contact the program director.

Professional Discounts

Speech-language pathologists, schools, and other institutions: please contact us for professional discounts.

Veterans Administration Medical Centers

Veterans Administration Medical Centers regularly provide Casa Futura Technologies SmallTalk devices. Ask for an appointment with a speech-language pathologist.

Vocational Rehabilitation

We’ve had many positive experiences with state vocational rehabilitation programs. If an adult (usually 16 or older) stutterer is unemployed, these programs pay for a anti-stuttering device, speech therapy, job training, and help the individual get a job. Find your state’s program on the Job Accommodation Network website or look in your telephone directory’s government “Blue Pages” under your state’s Department of Labor or Education.

Employers and the Americans with Disabilities Act

We hear this story over and over. A stutterer asks his or her employer for assistance paying for our devices. The employer is more than happy to help. The employer offers the stutterer a promotion. The employer says, “You’re our best employee. We’ve wanted to promote you for years but we were waiting for you to talk to us about your speech.”

The Americans with Disabilities Act prevents employers from talking to employees about their disabilities. The employee must start the conversation. If your job requires talking and you ask for a reasonable accommodation such as using an anti-stuttering telephone device on phone calls then your employer is required to pay for the device. If you also need the device outside of work then your employer may only pay for half the cost.

Health Savings Accounts and Flexible Spending Accounts

We accept payment from Health Savings Accounts (HSA) and Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA). This gives you a tax deduction for the cost of your device.

Health Insurance

Speech clinics bill insurance companies. Casa Futura Technologies doesn’t directly bills health insurance plans.

When asking for health insurance or Medicaid coverage, you will need the procedure and diagnosis codes. The CPT/HCPCS procedure code for electronic anti-stuttering devices is E1399-NU. The diagnosis code for stuttering is 307.0.

Service Clubs

We’ve had good experiences with service organizations including Sertoma (SERvice TO MAnkind) and Lions Clubs. Our experience has been that service organizations prefer to help low-income children and teenagers, and that they prefer to be approached by the child’s speech-language pathologist.

Obsolete and Used Devices

Casa Futura Technologies donates used devices to speech clinics and individuals in developing countries. We have donated devices to recipients in Benin, Bhutan, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, China, Cuba, India, Nigeria, Pakistan, Peru, and South Africa.
