Treating Stuttering- How and When?

The phenomenon of stuttering is a widespread phenomenon found everywhere and in every culture. There are different theories for the origin of the problem, as well as different techniques and methods that try to help those who suffer from stuttering.
When it comes to "developmental" stuttering that appears at the age of 2-3, it should go away in 80% of cases without intervention. When it comes to "stuttering" in an adult person that has become a chronic speech disorder, there are various methods that try to treat the disorder, but the results, if any, will usually be partial and will practically always not last. Whereas their is only one method that has proven itself today and for the past over 10 years and leads to 100% success in dealing with stuttering this is the method of the Dr. Fluency Institute, based on the  Precision Fluency Shaping method. With this method, the person who stutters learns to speak again while learning to control the speech system, which allows him to overcome the stutter.

Stuttering treatment - everything starts with technique!

For many years, stuttering disorder appeared in the American psychiatric catalog as a psychological disorder. Only in its latest version, DSM-5, was the definition of developmental fluency disorder changed to Childhood onset disorder, this is evidence to the directions of treatments that were used, and are still used today in treating PWS.
The starting point in the treatment was psychological. The person who stutters probably experiences a sense of being different, feelings of inferiority, lack of self-confidence, inability to communicate and anxiety. These feelings prevented them from going to social gatherings, job interviews, dates, etc. The psychologists or psychiatrists who treated people who stutter considered the consequences of stuttering on the patient's psyche and treated those symptoms. The goal was to spare the patients the shame and anxiety, and to cause a higher motivation in trying to deal with the disorder.

What happens to the person who stutters?

Since stuttering is now accompanied by difficult internal feelings, the stress in itself creates difficulty in speaking fluently (not just for stutterers...). When a person who stutters begins to speak, in his conscious memory he experiences difficult feelings of all his speech failures from now and forever, and these overwhelm him with a sense of frustration, loss of control, fear, anxiety, pressure and inferior feelings.  This seems like a foregone conclusion that leads to continue stuttering, then another failure that joins the previous attempts. All entering the collective memory which will flood the PWS in the next attempt.
Treatment of stuttering using Dr. Fluency's method is the most  professional method for treating stuttering. A scientifically proven method that has helped thousands of patients around the world restore control thus resulting in clear speech flow to people who stutter.
