For more than 40 years, the Del Ferro Institute has been hosting intensive courses to help people worldwide getting rid of stuttering. Various developments have taken place over the years. For example, branches have been set up in other parts of the Netherlands and even in Germany. People from abroad flew over to participate in the course that would change their lives. At the end of 2019, Del Ferro went to Miami in the United States of America and to Sri Lanka to host the course there.
Stuttering has a physical cause with mental consequences. It usually starts during the 2nd and 6th year. Toddlers at this age have periods in which they speak less fluent: about 4% repeats words or letters and stumbles over what they have to say. Most kids grow out of this but 1% stays with a stutter problem.
Our international course in Miami, Florida was a big success. After years of fruitless speech therapy our students have been searching for help in overcoming their stuttering. With the Del Ferro Method, they finally found a technique that enables them to speak fluently and take back control of their speech.
