MISSION VIEJO, Calif., Sept. 25 On September 29, 2008,viewers tuning in to the new CBS daytime show "The Doctors"(http://www.thedoctorstv.com) will find hope for stuttering. That day, the Dr.Phil McGraw-produced show will feature Mark Power, M.A., CCC-SP, founder ofPower Stuttering Center (http://www.powerstuttering.com), and one of hisclients whose stuttering was eliminated by the SpeechEasy(R) StutteringDevice.
Power, a Board-recognized stuttering specialist, overcame his ownstuttering and, for the past 25 years, has dedicated his life to helpingothers who stutter. And during his appearance on "The Doctors," viewers willhave a chance to see how lives are being changed by the latest stutteringtreatment options.
Producers of "The Doctors" asked Power to appear on the show as an expertin treating stuttering and to explain how the SpeechEasy helped his client.The smallest, most advanced new device available for the treatment ofstuttering, the SpeechEasy is small enough to fit completely in the user's earcanal -- yet thanks to its advanced microprocessor, the SpeechEasy is aspowerful as a full-sized computer.
The SpeechEasy uses that power to provide delayed auditory feedback (DAF)and frequency altered feedback (FAF), both based on the choral effect, anatural phenomenon that dramatically reduces or eliminates stuttering whenpeople who stutter speak or sing in unison with others. Each SpeechEasy iscustomized for the wearer's specific needs and challenges.
The SpeechEasy will be provided in addition to the Power StutteringCenter's five-day Intensive Therapy Program -- a structured, two-hour-a-dayprogram for adults and children as young as ten years old.
"I am excited to share with viewers how we are now combining technology,intensive stuttering therapy and medical treatments to bring stutterers aquality of life they may not have had before," Power explained. "It was anhonor to be featured on 'The Doctors' alongside Dr. Gerald Maguire, and I amhopeful that the show will help us get the word out that stuttering needn't bea lifelong struggle."
