Stuttering in adulthood

Stottertherapie en ademtraining met de Del Ferro methode

Despite years of research, the exact cause of stuttering is still not known, although there are several theories about it. Stuttering usually begins in children between the ages of two and six, often for no apparent reason.

Stuttering can sometimes occur after a profound or emotional experience, whether positive or negative. In some cases, children grow over their stuttering naturally, as if it were only a temporary phase.

Stuttering in adulthood

Sometimes stuttering does not begin until adulthood, often as a result of emotional trauma, such as a serious car accident or a sad event in the family. The insecurities that puberty can bring can also trigger stuttering.

There are cases where people hid their stuttering by using synonyms to mask it. Situations such as a new job with more speaking tasks or the need to speak a foreign language may reveal previously hidden stuttering, especially when synonyms can no longer serve as outlets.

Fixing stuttering later in life

After a certain age, stuttering does not disappear on its own and there is no quick fix such as medication or a vaccine. However, the Del Ferro method offers a solution. This speaking technique provides instant smooth speech by gaining control of the diaphragm, allowing for smooth airflow and therefore smooth speech.

By applying the technique consistently, the muscle develops a “memory” for fluid movements, which eventually becomes automatic.

Students are encouraged to apply the technique daily, even in situations that were previously challenging. Stuttering later in life can lead to speech anxiety. By applying this technique in challenging situations and experiencing success, such as fluently completing a presentation, self-confidence grows. This success encourages you to take on challenges more often, creating a positive spiral and speaking fears eventually disappear.

This not only addresses the physical cause of stuttering, but also overcomes the mental consequences step by step.

A great experience for our students. You never get used to it. Do you also want to live stutter-free?
