Have you seen the Oscar-winning film ‘The King’s Speech? If you haven’t, well, it narrates the story of England’s King George VI who had a stuttering problem and how he struggled to overcome his fear of speaking before the people of Great Britain. In the US, stuttering or stammering affects over three million Americans. Now, what is stuttering and how does it affect a stutterer’s daily life?
Stuttering is a speech impediment that is manifested by broken repetitions (da – da – da – dad), prolongations (hhhhhhhhhhhhhelp), or blocking (no sound or feeling of having their mouth stuck). When a person stammers, he or she might also experience unusual facial or body movements. Do you want us to help you develop self-confidence and effectively manage your stammering?

4.Express yourself in any way possible.
Try to speak slowly and deliberately. Also, watch or listen to any recordings of yourself during speech situations. Try to eliminate avoidances such as substituting words to evade from stuttering. Instead take note of words you normally stammer and use it in conversations as much as possible.
5.Keep a positive attitude and never give up!
An old maxim from sage Syrus says, “Practice is the best of all instructors.” Develop a mastery on the fluency model, read books on how to properly manage stammering behaviors, and practice a method during your stuttering method i.e. learning to relax and not holding back when saying syllables.
