Mastering Blocking and Stuttering: A Cognitive Approach to Achieving Fluency
Have you ever wondered why most people who block and stutter do not do so every time they speak? Indeed, most people who stutter are consistently fluent in certain contexts such as speaking to their pet or to a person they are comfortable with. This has been a puzzle for people who stammer and for speech pathologists for many years. At last the puzzle has been solved. In this outstanding new book, Bobby Bodenhamer details a completely new approach to treating this debilitating condition. Mastering Blocking and Stuttering both explains the structure of blocking and provides the cognitive tools for gaining more fluency. From identifying the origins of stuttering, through teaching the stammerer to think differently, to working with stress, the author provides a unique approach to achieving more fluency. ?At long last, speech language therapists and those who stutter have tools to address the most overlooked component of stuttering?the habits of thought that drive the speech block. The neuro-semantic processes described in this book will help the PWS to build a framework for fluency that can lead to permanent change.??John C. Harrison, National Stuttering Association
