Stamurai is a speech therapy app built to help stutterers / stammerers learn and practice speech therapy. Through constant practice and application of speech exercises outlined in the app, the stutterer can hope to achieve near perfect fluency and get relief from the daily struggles and suffering that accompany this order.
The app contains detailed tutorials for various speech therapy exercises. Each tutorial is followed up with exercises. These enable an in-depth understanding of the techniques. Some of the techniques included are - Pull Outs, Preparatory Sets, Light Contacts, Pausing, Easy Onset, Slides, Flexible Rate, Delayed Auditory Feedback (DAF) and Cancellations.
Apart from these techniques, the app has freestyle speech therapy exercises like
1. Reading Practice: read aloud content, record your voice and play it back
2. Vowels & Consonants: practice sounds instead of words
3. Speech Flow: develop awareness of your speech mechanism by answering questions
Accompanying all these is the Feared Words section where you can add the words in which you have particular difficulty. This helps the app analyse and customise the app contents to cater especially to those particular sounds.
You should try and practice for 20-40 mins every day. A timer accompanies every screen in the app to help you monitor the time you have spent. There is a statistics section so that you can monitor your progress towards this schedule.
We are stutters ourselves and have found these speech therapy exercises to be extremely helpful in our own journey conquering the disorder. There is a help section in the app where you can chat with us. Feel free to ping us if you need something or if you have suggestions or just want to talk.
We wish you all the best in your journey towards becoming a successful Stamurai
