The Concious Synthesis of Development: A Clinical Method for Treatment of Stuttering. Final Report.
Brajovic, Cvjetko; And Others
Presented are the results of a project to test and evaluate the Conscious Synthesis of Development (CSD) method for treating stuttering which concentrates on both psychological and physiological aspects of the disorder. The report is organized into the following divisions: definition and psychophysiology of stuttering; historical overview; review of selected contemporary therapeutic methods; principles underlying the CSD method; the therapeutic phases of CSD treatment; reactions of patients, parents, and therapists to the CSD method; statistical analysis of data collected on patients; and effects of liberation of spontaneous reading and speaking. Highlights of each of the three CSD treatment phases include mastery of the speech mechanism known as specialization and organization of attention, learning to read aloud without stuttering, and learning to speak in all situations.
