We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time

Denver Stuttering Therapy

 

 
his Web site explores many of the dimensions of stuttering and its effect on the human identity, as well as the development of stuttering behavior. It also includes an exploration of the "veils" (self images, projections, and lack of awareness) that must be worked through during therapy or self-therapy to begin and continue the process of stuttering recovery, and how these veils are largely protective mechanisms that people who stutter use to (unconsciously) cope with the disorder, just as all humans use similar "veils" to cope with other disturbing or discordant aspects of their lives.

In the course of this exploration, the site will address some of the reasons why stuttering seems so mysterious, and try to show how a lot of this mystery can begin to be resolved by acknowledging the experience of people who stutter: specifically, the feeling that stuttering involves an intermittent, uncontrollable, inhibition or disruption of speech. And we will address the dual nature of stuttering: how stuttering may develop from often occasional and mild, genetically-based motor breakdowns into a traumatic neuro-psychological insult that can be managed and/or extinguished but not cured.

The site also contains many news and resource items that may be of interest to people seeking information about stuttering, including reviews of films and books that discuss or portray stuttering, announcements and news articles, basic information about stuttering and stuttering therapy, and resources for students.
