Today's Stuttering Quotes (13.05.2013)


1.The stutterer believes that the most important communication in speech is to avoid stuttering at all costs. (Trotter)

2.What happens is this: The successful avoidance causes some anxiety reduction. Then, when a similar situation presents itself, the need to avoid is even stronger due to the preceding reinforcement. But now, no avoidance is possible. The conflict becomes even greater. And so several vicious circles (or rather spirals) are set into motion. (Van Riper)
