For the overwhelming majority of stutterers?
Your problem is rooted in early childhood.
Likely, when you were just beginning to learn how to speak, your parents noticed something was off…
…you weren’t speaking fluently.
If you are like me, you had the worst stuttering problem in your school and were in speech therapy for years. A few times a week, you would leave your class and receive speech “therapy”.
Unfortunately, speech therapy isn’t very helpful for many. Little measurable progress is made and the stuttering alone is extremely frustrating and debilitating.
For me, one day in particular was very rough.
I stuttered more than usual and broke down in tears. I asked my speech therapist if I would ever stop stuttering. After a long pause, she responded “… probably not…”.
It was crushing.
She’s like most speech therapists…
…she just doesn’t “get it”.
She doesn’t know what stuttering actually feels like, or the real world situations that stuttering presents. She also doesn’t really understand how to overcome the problem and use real world solutions to speak fluently in any situation.
A couple years after my speech therapist told me I would probably never stop stuttering, I was tasked with giving a speech in front of my entire school, both parents and students.
Roughly 2000 children and parents were in attendance.
I was only 11 years old.
I practiced and prepared with my therapists and parents for weeks and when the time came to give the speech, I blocked…
…I blocked and I couldn’t get a single word out.
My teacher had to read the entire speech that I had prepared.
I then received a standing ovation from the parents but it wasn’t for any accomplishment – it was a pity-ovation. And that standing ovation was one of the most humiliating moment of my life.
I didn’t receive the ovation because I did a good job, but because they felt sorry for me.
While walking back to class, dozens of fellow students mimicked and ridiculed me.
I’m sure you can probably relate to that.
It was a terrible feeling and I never wanted to feel like that again.
You likely have one or many stories like this that still stick out in your memory and cause pain and frustration to this day.
You very likely may be still accumulating these stories.
For me, it was in that moment that I decided that I would no longer be a stutterer.
I vowed to myself that where speech therapy had failed me, I would succeed.
