A World Without Stuttering.

“LIVE STUTTER FREE” is an English language Division of SPEECH ACADEMIE ETALON INTERNATIONAL by R.A. Snezhko, Inc. – a non-profit organization of progressive educators

who believe that every individual has the right and capability to choose the freedom

to fully express themselves as they desire.

We understand that without this freedom, it is most unlikely for an individual to feel deeply fulfilled or to fully realize their God-given purpose in life. For this reason, we have designed and offer revolutionary individual self-study courses for unblocking the mind & body of children and adults who stutter, for the elimination of stuttering or any other types of speech imperfection and for revival of the naturally balanced speech by any individual who follows precisely the Natural laws of Physiology with their own willpower.


Etalon Unblocking is a paradigm Shift in the world of science and education, an innovative and revolutionary online Educational and Certification Platform that offers customized virtual education accessible from anywhere in the world. The outcome of each individually customized 3-day Etalon course For The Elimination Of Stuttering is normalization of a student’s speech, thinking, memory and attention without any medical “treatment”, “cure” or long-term speech training. Sustainability of such successful result is 100% protected with our complimentary life-time Etalon guarantee against any relapses and returns of stuttering.

ANNA DEETER, M.A., Etalon Unblocking Master, Speech Educator, Author, Public Speaker, Founder, Director and Instructor

of Speech Academie Etalon International.


ANNA DEETER, Founder of Speech Academie Etalon International By R.A. Snezhko, English-language Division, has more than 30 years of experience as a conventional Speech Therapist in Russia and as a fully credentialed Speech-Language-Hearing-Rehabilitative Service Teacher in the U.S.A. During this time, Ms. Deeter conventionally treated numerous people who “stuttered,” “stammered” and “cluttered,” all of which are medical termsthat Anna strongly opposes today.

As will all traditional speech clinicians throughout the world, Anna practiced conventional therapeutic work, but was not satisfied with the results.  She began a journey to find the answer to “why” these traditional medical approaches and treatment methods, used for over hundred years, are essentially “ineffective” for stuttering.  Anna discovered that such traditional medical approaches lacked clear understanding of cause, mechanism and of ways to rid people of stuttering. In addition, they virtually never guaranteed a 100% successful outcome at the present moment. Anna’s professional curiosity and passionate desire to find a reliable solution for solving a “stuttering puzzle” made her look outside of the traditional approach. It was at that time Ms. Deeter found the “truths” of what the “source” behind stuttering actually is!

Since 2012, Anna has shared her knowledge with thousands of Individuals who “stutter”, “stammer”, “clutter” and “mumble”, all of which are caused by individual mental blocks that make people perform unnatural speech actions. Anna has personally educated hundreds of students with various levels of Speech Mastery. Whether these students spoke English as their primary or secondary language, all of them learned under her guidance the information about natural speech norms/etalons. They implemented her “Etalon” teachings and unblocked the connection between their “body, mind and will”. Through the “Etalon” Speech Unblocking Course, these students experienced a 100% revival of their following normal functions: Speech, thinking, memory and attention.

R.A. SNEZHKO was born in the city of Yaroslavl, Moscow Region, Russia. Starting at the age of 15, he experienced his own nightmare with stuttering. However, Roman was able to figure out the cause and then eliminate it on his own in only a short period of time. At age 18, Snezhko enlisted in the Russian Army, serving in the Marines Northern Fleet. Upon completion of his military service, he returned to his first love, education and entered Yaroslavl Technical University in Russia, receiving a degree with honors in Mechanical Engineering.

entered Moscow Medical College, obtaining a degree in Medical Business, again with honors.

He then enrolled in Moscow State University and received two more Masters level degrees; one in education and a second in Psychology, again with honors. Driven by his personal desire to go further in his understanding of human nature, Mr. Snezhko underwent an Intensive Visionary training by Masters of Yoga and Meditation. This training provided him with what he felt was a total understanding and vision of the world reality.


Today, R.A. Snezhko is the founder of several fundamentally new directions in science and the author of the unique Etalon Unblocking Program for the elimination of stuttering. For his invaluable contribution to the World and Russian Science and Culture, Roman Snezhko was awarded the esteemed title and recognition as a member of the International Academy of Unity of Nations of the World and also accepted the prestigious honor as a member of the Russian Circus Academy.

In 1998, Academic Snezhko made a major scientific discovery of the Anti-Matter Laws of Nature. Based on these laws, he created several extremely effective and unparalleled methods for the elimination of such “incurable illnesses” as stuttering, schizophrenia, depression and stress.

Mr. Snezhko introduced to the world the following scientific paradigms:

– The Science of the Word and the Formation of Conscious Speech in Humans
– The Science of “Rechevedenie” (Speech Self-Conduct)
– The Science of Sound Mathematics and Sound Information
– The Science of Harmonic Melodies of Human Speech
– The Theory of Stress and Fears
– The Sound Matrix of Human Speech
– The scientific “ETALON” method – the way to form and govern the human intellect

Roman Snezhko has written many scientific papers on education and medicine, which have been published. He is now continuing on in his pioneering research of the functioning of the human dynamic. He is currently employing his revolutionary scientific discoveries  and unique perceptive interactive skills to assist individuals who are suffering from and desire to eliminate completely stuttering, speech neurosis, poor eyesight, psychologically induced fears, depression and mental stupor.

During the over 30 years of his revolutionary teaching, Academic R.A. Snezhko has enabled over 10,000 individuals in stopping their stuttering in only 3 days, through their Etalon Speech Unblocking training and continues to do so!
