Recover From Stuttering - Start the New Year With These Strategies to Positive Change

Newsletter 47: January 2014

‘My positive change in 2014 will be to use my fluency technique every time I speak.’ Make this New Year resolution and stick to it.

Strategies to Positive Change:
  • Acknowledge the change – Tell yourself, “This is the’s here to stay.”
  • Avoid resisting the change – Many of us resist the unfamiliar, so make it familiar...use your fluency technique every time you speak.
  • Accelerate through the change – Persevere...persist...repeat the functions.

‘We can do anything we want to do if we stick to it long enough.’ - Helen Keller, 1880-1968


ASEA Convention 2014
The Queensland branch of the Australian Speak Easy Association (ASEA) is hosting the 2014 National Convention (held every two years) at the Gold Coast. It will be held over three days from 14-16 February. The theme for the convention is ‘Wave of Change…Keeping Yourself Afloat’. Ezy-Speech will be giving a presentation at this iconic event (we launched our stuttering therapy program at the 2010 convention in Sydney). It is recommended that anyone who has undertaken the Ezy-Speech program should seek out their state Speak Easy Association to benefit from the support.

“The ASEA is a national organisation for recovering stutterers. Australian Speak Easy is a national organisation with State bodies in New South Wales/ACT, Victoria, Queensland, South Australia, Western Australia, and Tasmania. The Speak Easy Association is a self-help organisation that provides support for people who stutter by holding weekly meetings in their respective metropolitan and rural locations. Groups meet regularly to work on fluency techniques, discuss individual stuttering problems and develop self confidence through role-playing and public speaking.

The Association’s primary aim is to assist people who stutter, particularly after they have undertaken some form of speech pathology treatment, by providing opportunities for its members to practise fluent speech skills, and to help individuals manage and control their speech in daily situations.”
