At that time, i decided to start a job only after getting considerable fluency in my speech, so i was frustrated that neither i am improving my speech as well as i am jobless too.My family as well as my friends, every one was upset with all this.
Anyways, one day, after discussing with one of my closest friend,i visited Stammering cure centre,banglore’s website and called Mr.Partha bagchi.
His encouraging words that he can surely improve my speech reinforce my belief that he can improve my speech in his ’14 days’ crash course.
I just booked a train ticket under tatkal facility and reached his centre.
On the very 1st day, he brief me his techniques.Most of his techniques were known to me already, hence, my expectations started to seize.
With course of time, about 12 days passed there with very less improvement in my speech and my frustration was piling on.
Then on 13th day of the course, i myself developed a typical style of speaking where i was stopping whenever i tend to stammer and talk again from that word only.It worked really well.For the last 2 days of course there, i talked in that style and everyone including Mr.bagchi appreciated my improvement.
Now, after reading enough on internet and printed materials, i come to know that the technique that i developed at that time is CANCELLATION.I was not aware at that time that there is any such technique available to manage your stammer.
May be that my continuous work on my speech made me develop that SELF HELP technique for me.
So, my point here is that – it is not that any particular technique is going to help everyone equally.
And, we should not expect miracles in speech therapy centers.
