Beating Stuttering Blocks

Information about improving fluency by controlling the physiological mechanism that may cause stuttering blocks.

 

William D. Parry, Esq., CCC-SLP

 

Valsalva Stuttering Therapy is a comprehensive new approach for treating the most common form of stuttering, often referred to as “persistent developmental stuttering.? Valsalva Control is based on the realization that most stuttering is caused not by a lack of ability to speak, but rather by an interference with that ability.  This interference is physiological in nature, but it may be triggered by various psychological factors.  In addition to addressing the psychological factors, Valsalva Control promotes easy, natural speech by controlling the physiological mechanism that causes stuttering blocks. 

Rather than focusing on controlling one's speech, Valsalva Stuttering Therapy is aimed at relaxing the Valsalva mechanism and reducing the urge to exert effort, so as to free the person’s own natural speaking ability.  Valsalva Control intentionally does not emphasize fluency, because any effort to “stop stuttering?would tend to activate the Valsalva mechanism and be self-defeating.  Instead, the goal is to make speech easier and more enjoyable.
