BASIC FLUENCY SYSTEM
Updated: 2008 March 14
WHAT IT’S FOR
The Basic Fluency System treats stuttering, cluttering, and Parkinson’s speech disorders.
How It Works
The Basic Fluency System alters the user’s voice in his or her ears to correct two neurological
abnormalities associated with stuttering. When adjusted to correct
stutterers’ auditory processing underactivity, the device immediately
reduces stuttering about 70%, without speech therapy, mental effort, or
abnormal-sounding speech. The device can also be adjusted to slow down
and relax speech motor activity, reducing stuttering 50% after removing the
device, even without speech therapy. With training from a speech-language
pathologist, the Basic Fluency System can nearly eliminate even severe
stuttering, and train the user to no longer stutter and no longer need the device.
Hearing Safety Warning
Your Basic Fluency System should reduce stuttering at comfortable listening volumes, about 85
dB or less. If the device doesn’t reduce stuttering at a comfortable volume, don’t adjust the
volume higher. Discontinue use of the device if you experience pain or ringing in your ears. We
recommend getting your hearing tested regularly.
FDA Childhood Warning
FDA regulations require that this device can be used by children under 18 only with the approval
of a speech-language pathologist.
