NORTH PALM BEACH, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, September 18, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — Every person has the same purpose: self-expression. The most effective way to express ourselves is through words. But according to the Stuttering Foundation, more than 70 million people worldwide stutter, about one percent of the population. In the United States, that's over 3 million Americans who stutter.
Anna Deeter is a speech educator and the founder of Live Stutter Free, a licensed by the Speech Academie Etalon International By R.A.Snezhko nonprofit.
“When people come to me I don't just teach them to speak,” says Deeter. “The outcome of my study course is people learn how to live their life, because speech is the foundation for everything. Every single word is a program for action.
Deeter is NOT a speech pathologist. At least not anymore. After years of practicing conventional speech therapy, she had a revelation that administration of any type of therapy for developing an adequate speech skill is completely wrong.
“Speech is a skill,” says Deeter. “We don't need medical professionals to get involved in this process. We need educators and teachers.”
Today, Deeter is a pioneer for a brand-new approach: speech education.
Just like writing, speaking is the form of verbal self-expression. Written or spoken, each word carries one meaning. Only one whole word! It is simply impossible to write or say more than one word at the same time. Those who attempt to do so always “stutter” in writing or in speaking. “One word at a time” is the simple rule for both these forms of self-expression. You know it well from school for writing, but not for speaking.”
Deeter says in her observation, most people are stutterers. They make speech mistakes. But when a young child begins learning to speak and makes his first natural mistakes, speech therapists call it a mysterious “disfluency disorder that requires a cure”. Violating the natural learning process, they begin teaching children all kinds of techniques, tricks, and methods. But normal speakers don’t use techniques, tips, tricks, methods and strategies.
Deeter specializes in Etalon Speech, where Etalon stands for natural norms and standards. Her 3-day Etalon Speech Gymnastics trains speaking according to the natural speech norms.
“Every person who stutters is looking for the cure that doesn't exist for the simple reason that there is no disease.,” says Deeter. “So the very first step is to realize that you're not sick, that you don't have a disease. If you want to normalize your speech, you should simply learn and follow the norms.”
Deeter says the subject of speech education should become a mandatory subject in every school curriculum. She has helped hundreds of students with severe stuttering and claims she only needs three days to guide a stutterer to become a normal speaker.
