I am Stephen Hill from Birmingham in England. I started to stutter in childhood at the age of four or five. I attended a lot of different types of speech therapy, some in groups, some on a one to one basis. I have had lots of stuttering advice on how to stop stuttering. These are some:
slowing down my breath
taking a deep breath before I spoke
I had began in the class called, preschool stuttering. This term is labelled by the stuttering speech therapist or the stuttering speech pathologist. My parents were reassured that most people who stutter in childhood soon grow out of it. Well I was one of those who didn't.
I then joined the class called, childhood stuttering. I continued to attend speech therapy and joining in with their speech therapy activities and their speech therapy games.
I then progressed to the class called, adult stuttering. I now decided that speech therapy was not really working for me.
I decided to try my own form of stutter self help.Even though I had a stutter, at times I could talk very well. As an example when I was drunk, I spoke nearly perfectly fluent.
After nearly a year I managed to overcome stuttering and eradicate the stutter once and for all. As a career I now help other people to stop stuttering.
