Outward signs of a stuttering problem
Have you ever wondered if you have a stuttering problem? A stuttering problem or stammering problem can usually be seen readily from the outside but many times it is also felt deeply on the inside. Characteristics of outward stuttering behaviors such as repetitions, prolongations, and blocks are different from those found in normal speakers. Normal speakers rarely exhibit these behaviors, usually less than 3%.
Inward signs of a stuttering problem
People who stutter are not able to say what they want to say when they want to say it. They often feel embarrassed, ashamed, or even guilty believing that they are doing something wrong. People who stutter rarely meet anyone else who stutters.
They usually don’t have anyone to talk to her about the stuttering. They must tackle this disability alone. People who stutter look around and see that no one else has this happening to them. They may conclude that they are doing something wrong that is producing this disorder.
How to resolve stuttering
If stuttering persists through preschool years, into childhood through teenage years, the most effective treatment has been shown by research to be an Intensive Stuttering Treatment program delivered by Stuttering Specialist trained in intensive stuttering therapy. Unfortunately, there are a few stuttering specialists and even fewer intensive therapy clinics in the United States. The American Board of Fluency and Fluency Disorders has a list of stuttering specialists and Intensive Stuttering treatment programs.
Recovery from teenage or adult Stuttering has been shown by clinical studies to be not only possible but probable. Intensive therapy using a prolonged speech approach implemented by a trained clinician is necessary. Also, the client must work through the days of intensive training and most importantly follow through with a guided program to transfer stutters free-speech into all speaking situations.
The Power Stuttering Center provides such a program implemented by is stuttering specialist, Mark Power, who is a recovered stutterer and has gone through this same program himself.
