You are a stutterer and your dearest wish is to become fluent. You have the
feeling that stuttering is controlling your life and you would like to find a
way to control stuttering. Maybe you already explored several therapies and
none of them really worked.
This book should allow you to improve your fluency and eventually
totally eliminate stuttering from your life. The process will take a long time:
probably several months and maybe more than a year. You were probably
dreaming of a therapy that would enable you to control stuttering in just a
few days and might be somewhat disappointed to read that it will take a
longer period of time. You have to understand that you have been stuttering
for several years or decades. Stuttering is a habit that is now deeply rooted
inside you and changing this habit will inevitably take time.
The first part of this book will give you theoretical descriptions of
stuttering. It will provide you with the basic understanding that you need in
order to control stuttering. You will learn that stuttering is a complex
phenomenon that is not limited to your speech system. The stuttering
phenomenon also includes all kind of behaviors and these behaviors will
have to be changed one by one if you want to be able to durably control
stuttering.
The second part of this book is composed of 30 exercises aimed at
controlling your stuttering. These exercises are divided in two sets. The first
set directly addresses the speech process while the second set addresses the
different behaviors associated with stuttering.
