a)When I was a stutterer I found it difficult to pronounce words beginning with certain letters such as b,d,g,k, and v etc I would always be substituting words e.g., “Birmingham” to “West Midlands”. These letters plus others are known as “hard sounding” letters of alphabet. I found “soft sounding” letters (vowels plus letter h) normally OK to say. Therefore I was trying to find a technique which would enable me to make hard sounds soft, I eventually found answer and one of speech rules covers this.
b)I hated “blocking” when I was a stammerer. One of speech rules when applied makes it impossible for stutterer to block.
c)For most stutterer’s their speech is at its most vulnerable when they are under pressure. I therefore have a speech rule dealing with this issue.
6.How to become fluent using speech rules.
7.Understanding psychological aspects of speech.
There is nothing in course for client to fear or worry about. If there is an area of course that they would rather not cover or do they simply do not do it.
Each course is unique, as every stutterer is different; this is why courses are run on a one-to-one basis.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me.
