Amazing

I purchased a DAF while attending the ASHA convention. It is amazing how much delight my students with fluency issues gained from using the device. In addition to supporting their reduction of dysfluencies, I observed an expansion of sentence length and an increased quantity of utterances. They enjoyed listening to themselves! Thank you for producing a quality item at a reasonable price.



Best Wishes,

Three students no longer stutter

I am writing to say "thank you" for the contributions you and your company have made to the treatment of stuttering. The web site is a generous offering of information given to the public and professionals at no charge. Several years ago, I ordered a Delayed Auditory Feedback machine from your company and saw wonderful results for my students. I used the device to establish fluency and then introduced fluency shaping techniques. I have three elementary students who have "graduated" from the speech therapy program because they no longer stutter! I whole heartedly endorse your products.

A joy to hear him talk

Dear [school speech-language pathologist],



When Jonathan came home on Friday I had him put on the DAF and tell me about his day. IT WAS AMAZING! He did not stutter at all. I have to tell you, I broke down and cried. It was such a joy to hear him talk and not fight to get his words out.



He wore it during the evening on Friday, and all day Saturday. I think he only stuttered a total of three times in two days. He seems to be quite comfortable wearing it. It did not seem to distract him at all. We encouraged him to start speaking a little louder while he has the device on. He has become very soft-spoken with his stuttering problem. He talked to himself out loud a lot this weekend while he had the DAF on. We did not tell him to stop since he was getting use to it. I did talk to him and tell him that he cannot do this during class since it would be a distraction.



You have been a big part of Jonathan's life over the past four to five years. We want you to know how much we appreciate the extra time and effort you spend with him. I thought of you often this weekend as I sat and enjoyed listening to Jonathan talk to us with such fluency.



Sincerely,

He could speak with no problem

I must tell you in my stuttering group once a week there came a new member from Germany but I think born in India and with very bad stuttering. When he should say his name it took about three minutes with very big stretches in all his body. After a while we asked if he wanted to try a [School] DAF and with the [School] DAF he almost at once could speak [slowly] with no problem. That is what I every time find with the DAF.

Two students graduated from the speech therapy program

I am a speech therapist in the public school system. I have been using the School DAF and had two students graduated from the speech therapy program who now have fluency within normal limits. I use the device daily as an auditory trainer for articulation therapy too! I turn the delay to off and turn the volume up so that the student can self monitor. It works great.



Thank you for making a great product that is making a difference in the lives of children who stutter.

Completely changed my student's life!

Thank you very much!! The DAF has completely changed my student's life!



Over Christmas break, Jake did not want to use his headset out in public. He does not mind using it in school; in fact, the other kids think it's really cool. Without his device over the holidays he had a rough time. An adult man was actually teasing him out in public! We appreciate your help!



It was good to document the difference in his fluency. I need to do this before the school will buy him his own DAF or upgrade.



Thanks for all that you do!
