While speech coaching can be an extremely efficient and productive method to helping reduce a stutter or stammer, it may not always be enough. One of the drawbacks to a speech coach is their schedule. They may not be able to coach you when you are feeling less confident in a certain speech area, or maybe their methods aren’t showing results as quickly as you had hoped. If this is the case, don’t worry! Speech is a skill that requires practice and time, and the speech device experts at SpeechEasy are here to help you with some self-guided practice tips to help you reduce stuttering. Read on to learn more about how practicing at home could help you on your stuttering assistance journey!SpeechEasy | stuttering assistance

Practice, Practice, Practice

Practice is the number one way to help you reduce a stutter. This means practicing beyond the therapist’s office! With stuttering assistance, simply grab a family member, friend, or loved one to have a conversation! Practicing your speech in a safe environment around people you trust is key to your stuttering assistance process, and may make you feel more at ease to have an open discussion to practice.

Record Yourself

Speech device experts at SpeechEasy recommend that you record yourself practicing your speech when alone. This could be a great way to practice your speech while also letting out some tension from your day. Whether you record yourself reading a few pages from your favorite book, self-journaling, or having a conversation with a friend, recording yourself is one of the best ways to look back on your speech and make a note to adjustments or techniques that you want to focus on.

If hearing your own voice produces feelings of nervousness or anxiety, try and remember that hearing yourself progress through your stuttering assistance training can be encouraging! Just take it at your own pace and remember that not every technique works for everyone.

Try Out a Speech Device from SpeechEasy

If you’re finding that you might need a bit of extra help with your stuttering assistance, SpeechEasy’s speech device range may be just what you need! With a similar appearance to a hearing aid, the SpeechEasy speech device works to alter sounds that go through the device so that you hear your voice at a slight time delay and a different pitch. The purpose of the change is to recreate a natural phenomenon known as the “choral effect.” This effect occurs when your stutter is dramatically reduced or eliminated when you speak or sing in group unison.
