Can Speech Therapy Help to People Who Stutter?
Conventional Speech Therapy is based on the mistaken approach towards stuttering (inaccuracy!) as a mysterious sickness requiring a cure. Guided by Speech Therapists/Pathologists, people who stutter perform tasks that do not meet natural speech standards (norms). Therefore, people who stutter are missing the reference and cannot normalize their speech.
Can Other Treatments Help to People Who Stutter?
Both conventional and alternative therapy treatments are not effective because it is impossible to treat inaccuracy.
What is a Definitive Solution For the Elimination of Stuttering?
Speech professionals, teachers, family members and those who stutter must discontinue irrational, useless and harmful attempts to cure a non-existent stuttering illness. Stumbles and mistakes in speech are impossible to cure. To eliminate stuttering (inaccuracy), it is crucial to teach all people who stutter the Natural Speech Norms and to follow them always and everywhere with a 100% accuracy.
