Stuttering - Stop Stuttering and Speak Freely without Speech Control Techniques
Dr Baker's unique approach grew out of his own personal experience. He stuttered himself until about age 50. Dr Baker's approach is for people who stutter and want more than Speech Pathology can offer. It works for people who want to be free of having to use speech control or relaxation techniques in daily life, or if Speech Pathology just does not work well enough. Dr Baker is not a Speech Pathologist, and does not use behavioral, speech control, or relaxation techniques for himself or his patients.
Dr Baker discovered the key to eliminate stuttering while working on a PhD dissertation, The Etiology of Stuttering. He discovered that stuttering can be due to a thought process developmental disorder. He underwent experimental treatment based upon his discovery, and his stuttering was eliminated. During treatment, he discovered that he also had learning disabilities, which also were eliminated. Watch Dr Baker tell his story on video here.
Dr Baker's discoveries helped to shape his mission -- to help others eliminate stuttering and the painful life experiences that he experienced when he stuttered. After completing his PhD, he earned another doctorate degree, refining his treatment with patients in a clinical environment.
Learning Disabilities, ADHD, Social Interaction, Communication, and Behavioral Problems
As parents of these children know, many of them are extremely gifted intellectually, but they seem to be wired differently, preventing them from enjoying these gifts socially, in school, at home, and at play. Dr Baker's treatment methods essentially rewire the thinking process, which can eliminate symptoms or offer great improvement.
Dr Baker does not view these symptoms as neurologically based, but treats them as early thought process developmental disorders. An LAUSD elementary school principal consulted him about treatment for children diagnosed with Learning Disabilities, ADHD, and/or Autism Spectrum Disorders. His clinical treatment resulted in elimination or great improvement in communication, relationship, and behavior problems. Children were moved from Special Education classes, and one went on to Magnet School.
Dr Baker's experiences expanded his mission to include helping to remove communication, relationship, and social interaction blocks for those with these diagnoses.
Dr Baker uses British Object Relations techniques to treat addiction and impulse control problems. He also has a specialized Problem Gambling and Gambling Addiction treatment. He has recently been accepted as a provider by the CALGets Problem Gambling Treatment Program, funded by the State of California. Gambling problems extend beyond gaming into other forms of addiction and risk taking behaviors. These problem behaviors can be incorporated into financial investing, day trading, and making "bets" with oneself that high risk behaviors of any kind will not have adverse consequenses.
CALGets offers no cost treatment services to California residents who are problem gamblers and their families or significant others.
