I’m sharing my experience of attending 13 sessions @ Partha Bagchi’s clinic. The very first day he introduced me with the basic technique of prolongation and we had to follow it all day long. Apart from that he even put emphasis on vocal exercises as well as meditation. He even made us talk on the microphone in front of other PWS which is helpful for people who have a fear of talking in front of a crowd.
Now how effective the course is??
Well it is effective…but not a necessity when you know the relevant techniques…and you practice it religiously yourself. I have observed that the main problem that lies with us stammerers is a want of a instant cure and giving hope all hope when we fail to get the cure. I had gone to take his therapy with the same thinking and was expected to have a stammer free life after those 2 weeks. I had improved my speech to a considerable extent but wasn’t fully cured and due to that i kinda lost hope and gave up practice and i’m back to my previous state. So do remember one thing….practice is the key….of course i knew all the techniques but never practiced it myself….but did it there…so it helped a lot.
So it isn’t a necessity to attend any course if u know the techniques but knowing isn’t enough, u need to apply them too and practice it regularly.
One thing I didn’t like about Partha Bagchi was his misleading advertisements of a sure cure within 14 days otherwise it was okay.
So to sum up, the course is very effective but nothing new(information wise) for people who have attended speech therapies, done researches, etc. Only thing is that you get a environment to practice at a stretch of 14 days there with everyone else.
The thing is we know a lot bout stammering, infact I feel that I know so much that I can help people get rid of their stammer but when it comes to me I lack the determination to practice everyday. Just knowing isn’t enough.
I had been talking with Sachin Sir, and have plans of opening a SHG in my area in Kolkata. Will start it very soon.
