On Sundays, we'll go live with the guys from the Improve Program to talk with you about our struggles and challenges on the way to freedom from stuttering. The guys will also practice their new speaking skill using their hand stuttering technique for confident and relaxing speaking.
In this stream, we'll talk about how to bring our stuttering technique into real life.
The reasons why it's so hard to use the hand stuttering technique in real life:
First, as we start out in the classroom it's much slower than regular pace. Then as we get more swift with our fingers we still are more deliberate with stresses. We're natural, but not as rushed as we assume we should be.
We want to pretend to be "normal."
When we stutter we just stutter. We struggle once. When we try to improve and apply the technique we are afraid to fail twice - when we try and fail and then again stutter.
Having a clear picture, clear plan where and how you're moving step by step. Giving yourself time to get there.
Being inspired both by peers' bad and good experiences. Creating a group movement you're getting involved into, feeling that you're a part of that movement.
