I have been stuttering since early childhood. I went through speech therapy several times before without any significant changes in my speech outside the therapy room. Now, I have been in therapy for the last 10 months with marked long term improvement in my speech (and a lot of ups and downs). There are several factors that have contributed to this success.
Most important was that I was finally ready to accept that my speech was a problem that I wanted to and could work on. This came to the forefront because I just began practicing as an office pediatrician 2 years ago and communication is central to this profession. I also felt that my speech had been worsening over the past few years. As I began therapy, the office also became the ideal place to practice what I was learning.
