Sample text

Becoming frustrated about not being able to formulate a particular point of view generates nonfluency in any speaker, nonstutterer or stutterer. If, in fact, basic stuttering in the form of intraphonemic disruptions is in evidence, it signals the need for additional practice or coarticulation. On the other hand, if excessive nonfluency prevails, other procedures may serve to reduce it. A direct and rather simple approach is to write a word on each of a stack of cards, words such as shoes, politics, steel, baseball, geography, and so forth.

Contributory opinions cannot be identified with individual group members, yet they are known to originate with peers who share a common background of stuttering. Use of such a procedure promotes change in group structure; group dynamics are altered. For example, group members who previously believed that group status depended on a minimum of stuttering or lack of urgency to work on their stuttering, eventually use the group situation as an experimental station in which to test their change of attitudes as well as to practice skills related to the management of their stuttering.

When common sense prevails, stutterers realize it is better to shape their own behaviors on the basis of valid information than it is for their behavior to be shaped by others who have no understanding of what is going on. The foregoing does not imply that stutterers should be insensitive to the reactions of their listeners. The manner in which one stutterer worded it reflects how many stutterers resolve the issue of listener reactions: It isn’t that you don’t care what they think—you really do.
