Information About Speech Therapy Courses

  • Sharebar

I am thirty-six years of age and live in Birmingham, England. From the age of four I unfortunately had a speech impediment known as stuttering. This impediment basically ruined my life for eighteen years before I finally managed to overcome the stutter. This article is all about stuttering or as some people call it stammering.

Stammering or stuttering can have a dramatic effect on somebodys confidence and it certainly seemed to my crush mine. It made me accept second best in life and stopped me living my life as I wanted to.

I have no doubt that it must be extremely hard for a fluent person to be able to realise just how difficult life can be for someone that has a stammer/stutter.

I now run stop stuttering courses from my home town of Birmingham. A couple of years ago one of my clients told me about a situation he had been involved in. He had an afternoon out with his friends in a local pub on a Sunday a few months back. After a couple of pints he went up to the bar to order himself a drink. Unfortunately he could not speak all of the words fluently and the barman accused him of being drunk and refused to serve him. He stated to the bar worker that he was not intoxicated and that he actually had a speech impediment – the bar man just thought he was lying though.

He returned to his friends who asked him where his drink was. He told them what had happened, this itself was very embarressing.

Whether you are work selling external doors or if you offer cheap calls; effective communication is essential to all of us. Unfortunately for some, like myself in the past, stuttering can have a dramatic impact on our lives.

Steve runs The How to Stop Stuttering Centre in the UK where he offers a one-to-one intensive therapy course helping people to achieve fluency.
