New Book on Stuttering Dispels Myths Offers New Insights for Effective Treatment
Date:8/18/2014

(PRWEB) August 18, 2014

In “From Stuttering to Fluent Speech, 6,300 Cases Later: Unlocking Muscle Mischief” (ISBN 978-1494295899), stuttering expert Ronald L. Webster, Ph.D. dispels long-standing myths and misinformation that surround the disorder and takes readers on a compelling journey into stuttering and its treatment from a scientific viewpoint.

Written for people who stutter, parents of children who stutter, and speech-language professionals, Webster provides new insights into this unusual human condition, based on his extensive research and experience with thousands of stuttering cases. Stuttering affects three million people in the U.S. and 66 million globally.

“Stuttering is one of the most misunderstood and mistreated of all human disorders, leaving stutterers to wander through a maze of misinformation and therapies that don’t deliver lasting results,” Webster explains.

He begins the book’s exploration into stuttering by going back sixty thousand years to the dawn of anatomically modern humans. Along the journey to a better understanding of this perplexing problem, he points out the experts’ “disappointing failure to define stuttering.” The problem with stuttering, according to Webster, is that stuttering is not the problem.

“The repetitions, prolongations, and voice blockages that we label as stuttering are caused before a syllable is ever uttered,” Webster says.

His book includes scientific analyses that indicate what may cause stuttering. In addition, Webster imparts how his nonprofit stuttering research and therapy center, Hollins Communications Research Institute (HCRI), uses science and technology to treat stuttering with greater objectivity, reliability, and overall effectiveness.

As each chapter unfolds, readers will:

  •     Gain insights into why and when stuttering occurs during speech
  •     Understand the role critical patterns in nature play in effective stuttering treatment
  •     Learn about new discoveries and technological advancements in stuttering therapy
  •     Discover what it takes to control stuttering and achieve long-term fluency

A final chapter on improvements that are being pursued in stuttering treatment are opening doors through fluency for those dealing with one of humankind’s oldest and most unusual disorders.

“From Stuttering to Fluency, 6,300 Cases Later: Unlocking Muscle Mischief” is available on Amazon.com. Additional book and author information is available at http://www.DrRonWebster.com.
