Stuttering Treatment | ABC's of Smoother Speech

I work personally with people from around the world every day. My clients are generally professionals such as Doctors, Lawyers, Business Men and Women, Computer Engineers and Programmers. I've worked with students and people who are unemployed. And, the one thing I do with every one of them is what I'm going to teach you in this FREE course.

If you struggle with stuttering or stammering, you WILL want to jump into this course because this stuff really, really works. ALL of my clients have done other programs and Speech Therapy. For them, this system was a life changer.

The PRO90D Speech System 2.0 is NOT about...

  • Curing stuttering or stammering,
  • Treating stuttering or stammering,
  • Stopping stuttering or stammering.

The PRO90D Speech System 2.0 IS about helping you create brand new way or style of speaking that is much smoother, more fluent and confident than your current way of speaking. It's about REPLACING your current pattern of speaking, NOT fixing it. This system is also designed to help you become an excellent speaker. That means when people hear you speak, they'll stop and listen. One of my clients recently won "Best Speaker" at her local Toastmasters. And, she's not the first!

So, take the first in this journey toward smooth, fluent and confident speech.

Take This Course Today...Remember, the time is going to pass anyway. The only question is, will you be any better 6 months from now than you are today.

"Hi – Michael – I live in the UK and have stammered/stuttered blocked my whole adult life, my speech has got worse over the years, I am now 53 years of age, my job at work involves a lot of speaking as I am a team leader, I have been taking a keen interest in your videos on YouTube,and emails with video links in, just to let you know I watched the email/video you sent on catching yourself and stopping yourself before you stammer/stutter/block about 10 days ago.

I have been applying it to my speaking rigorously, there has been such a big improvement in my fluency over 5 days, I have gained a lot of confidence as well as I know I am a lot more fluent, it is like a snowball rolling down a hill and gathering pace, it is like you say, you have to learn a new way of speaking, I subscribed to the PRO90D 2.0 Speech system yesterday and am watching the 2nd video now.

I would just like to thank you very much for all your hard work, effort and dedication to make the PRO90D 2.0 Speech system available.

Many Thanks…………………..P.S."

NOTE: This is an introductory course. What I teach here are the exact techniques and strategies I use with my coaching clients whose lives are never the same after the coaching. This is not theory, it all very practical. However, this course should be taken in conjunction with the PROD90D Speech System. If you are taking this, a free course, expecting to watch it and learn a few techniques to help you stop stuttering, please do not take it. It will however, provide you with the foundation you need to take better advantage of the PRO90D Speech System. My speaking or teaching style is not for everyone. If you watch a video or two and don't like it, please don't continue to take the course. If you do like, feel free to continue watching and learning.

This video introduces you to the exact process I take my clients through during our first few weeks together. This process helps them diminish, and ultimately all STOP outward signs of stuttering. Note: I noticed a comment about how much I repeat myself, myself....Yes, I do this on purpose. Repetition is critical. In most cases it's also tedious. For some people it may be irritating, and for those I understand. However, I do believe the benefit of repetition far outweighs the irritation it may cause to some.

Speech Coach for Professionals Who Stutter

Michael is the founder of The Start Speaking Training Center, LLC, author of "Don't Try to Stop Stuttering, REPLACE It!" and creator of The Pro90d Speech System. He is the author of several courses on Udemy and has over 100 videos on YouTube. Michael was a professor of Student Success at a local community college where he began teaching on campus and later switched to online to give him more flexibility.

One of the careers that has served him well was being a Relationship Coach which he did for more than five years. Being married for over 24 years to the same woman both helped him do this job well and gave him an opportunity to enhance his own relationship.

Currently, Michael has devoted himself to two endeavors. One of them is helping people who stutter, stammer, have fear of public speaking or otherwise want to improve their communication (speaking) skills speak more smoothly, fluently and confidently. The other is helping people like himself who are called to teach reach their audiences as effectively and efficiently as humanly possible.

In 2012 Michael was contacted by a wealthy Indian doctor who hired him, and flew him to India to coach his son who was also a doctor (Update: Michael has completed his second paid trip to India in November 2013 where he spent almost (4) weeks doing life and speech coaching). This doctor found Michael on YouTube. THIS event was a turning point for him because it clearly demonstrated the power of clarity, purpose, passion, dedication and video. He had been working with people who stutter for over three years and wondered if he could ever really do this full time. This experience answered his question and totally transformed his life, business and subsequently the lives of all of those whom he has coached since.

More about the Michael the Speech Coach...

For more than 20 years Michael struggled with stuttering, sometimes severe, and other times mild. He always had this awareness of stuttering which in many ways controlled his life and limited him. There were times when he would stutter so severely, he would bite his tongue trying to get a word out. In school, he wouldn't volunteer to do certain things because it required him to read aloud or speak in public. Even when he knew an answer, he would not raise his hand because he wasn't sure he could get the words out. Although, he didn't completely let this hold him back, it did limit him greatly.

Sometime in his mid twenties, he figured out that stuttering speech was not just physical, but was also psychological. He realized that stuttering was as much a way of thinking as it was a way of speaking. Therefore, if he could change his thinking and create a new way of speaking, he could start speaking well.

THIS was the turning point for him. Once he believed this, it gave him hope, courage and the perseverance he would need to stick in there with this process of changing his subconscious over the next several years or so. He also discovered that it would be better to focus on learning to speak well, by modeling great speakers, than to focus on trying to stop stuttering. He didn't know it at the time, but this would be a great breakthrough.

Michael focuses not on treating stuttering, but teaching and coaching people to speak more smoothly, fluently and confidently. He has studied, taught and used accelerated learning strategies, and student success strategies. He has worked in ministry, and as a Relationship Coach, so he knows the importance of having excellent communication skills. Michael has taught live and online. He's done live T.V. interviews, been on radio and even cable television. He has taught classes in English and Spanish. Although he hasn't worked with Spanish intensively in a while, he understands the challenges of learning new patterns of speech, and more importantly, how to overcome those challenges.
