Chennai Chapter Meets…

Dear all,
The Chennai chapter meeting was held on 09.12.2012 after gap
of 6 months and attended by 10 PWS including 2 new ones.
One important thing I noticed in this meeting is  those who are attending meetings regularly are
not only their speaking is improved but also their secondary symptoms reduced considerably.
There are two very good examples I wish to inform here.
One is Mr.Vishal Dadha, one of the founder members of
Chennai chapter who is attending regularly for the past 4 years. When he
joined, he stammered badly. Whenever block occurs, he uses to hit his fist very
hard on his thigh till the word comes out. If he speaks for about 10 min, the number
of times the secondary symptoms occurs would be about 10 times. To my surprise,
when he spoke in this meeting, he never stammer and ‘ZERO’ secondary symptom. Really
a marvelous achievement indeed.   Hats
off to Vishal.
The other pws is Mr.Prabu Francin. He is coming to the
meetings for the past 3 years. Occasionally he uses to conduct SHG meetings in
a park in my absence. Initially, when block occurs to him, he used to look  at the roof until the word come out. Though he
came last minute for this meeting, he has spoken with me and 2 other pws. To my
surprise, he has spoken fluently with no secondary symptoms at all. Prabu
Francin further informed that, he used to take training classes for software
students. Hats off to Prabu Francin also for his wonderful achievement.
Though both of them have done some practices / exercises in
the past, they are not doing anything now. What they are now doing is accepting
stammering and attending SHG meetings regularly.
In the above context I wish to inform about one thing that I
am having some reservations over the so called “BLOCK CORRECTION’ and ‘ELIMINATION
OF SECONDARY SYMPTOMS’ which I read in so many articles. From my understanding
and from my experience, it is very difficult to eliminate secondary symptoms
and block corrections in non-comfort zones. When a pws starts speaking well,
his secondary symptoms also gets reduced gradually and vanished completely when
he started speaking well.
Another thing I have observed in this meeting is those who
are attending  for SHG meetings regularly
but still stammering, are in happy frame of mind compared to when they first attended
SHG meeting.
The ‘MANTRA’ for controlling stammering is  attending SHG meetings regularly which I thing
is the very easiest known option available.
That’s all from Chennai chapter.
