Stammering in an adult

Adult male with stuttering problem

Rasheed, a 21-year-old engineering student, came to us with a complaint of stuttering since his childhood. He blamed all his failures on stuttering, but we were confident that his confidence would return once he learned to control it. Eliminating stuttering during reading was our first target, and gradually, we worked on communication. When he finally spoke to his dad over the phone with a minimal stammer, we all rejoiced. He followed up with us for a year to avoid a relapse and continues to maintain his fluency to this day.

Takeaway Note

As there is no cure for stammering in adults, we understand that achieving and maintaining fluent speech is tough for the client. However, using time out – an evidence-based behavioral technique – proved effective for Rasheed. We also trained him to self-monitor his disfluencies, and he slowly gained fluency in all situations. Regular follow-up was also a crucial factor for the success.
