The importance of fluency
Speech is a natural function. We have never given our attention to this gift of using language and expression, but people who suffer from stuttering, find themselves excluded from society, suffer from psychological symptoms accompanying the failure to speak and most of them suffer from anxiety disorder, social anxiety and more
The main reason for the difficult feelings that accompany the public who stutter is the feeling of failure and especially the inability to say something, simply say, something that for people who don't stutter is obvious, simple and easy and for people who stutter, it's like climbing Everest to say a complete sentence in a row without stuttering , blushing, repeating a word or sounds, rubbing your throat, swelling from stress and not being able to form a complete sentence. It is an indescribable suffering that causes and leads to unjustified mental damage. People who suffer from stuttering do and will do anything to overcome the embarrassing phenomenon. This phenomenon causes them to exclude themselves from job interviews, not to make social connections and certainly not with members of the opposite sex. The feeling is of inferiority and worthlessness and it is very sad.
To speak, express, express
- the most natural thing in the world!
The most famous person in the world who suffered from a stutter is George VI who abdicated the throne (by marrying Wallis Simpson). He was treated for years by a communication therapist named Lionel Logue and the movie The King's Speech expresses the success of the treatment and is based on a real event, when on the brink of World War II, while England needs a real leader and security, George VI makes a speech on the radio (he does not stutter in the speech) and succeeds in causing the union of hearts.
Imagine a king who stutters. Even the highest title cannot prevent a king who stutters from feeling anxious, and without the support of his therapists, his family and Churchill, George VI would not have dared to speak, and certainly not on the radio, which indicates the helplessness and much support that people who stutter need to Gain confidence and speak fluently. Lack of regular speech causes a person to avoid expressing himself, burying his ideas, avoiding connections or expressing an opinion to the point of "defamation" of real identity.
Dr. Fluency's method understands the mind of the stutterer!
The principle inherent in Dr. Fluency's method - to start over basically turns to the tormented soul of the person who stutters and tells her - forget everything, here is a new opportunity and you have to start over.
It is impossible to uproot from the soul of the person who stutters all the difficult feelings and anxiety that accompany his speech failures, therefore, what the method tries to do is not to uproot you, but to "bypass" them by saying that the person does not speak as he has spoken so far, they correct him, but rather he begins to learn to speak and to breathe and pronounce words in a method he is not familiar with, which slowly opens him up to a new opportunity just for speaking and learning, but also prevents him from encountering the feelings that have prevented him until now from learning to overcome his stuttering. Dr. Fluency's method produces speech fluency and reshapes speech for people who suffer from stuttering and its success rates testify to the wisdom of the method and its ability to make patients forget about past speech failures.
So how do you overcome stuttering?
In order to overcome stuttering, we must go through a rehabilitation process for the speech system which will teach us again how to control the system and how not to let stuttering dictate the way we produce speech, what I say and our life in general.
