The method was good 20-30 years ago because there was nothing better available.
It used the "Lucky fluency" phenomenon which did work for some people.
However, "lucky fluency" can be accomplished with other stuttering therapies as well.
The problem with this is that for most people, the initial fluency doesn't persist despite training as instructed, and stuttering gets worse.
The Del Ferro institute's strict slogan "If you use the Del Ferro method, you don't stutter" is wrong and leaves a bad feeling of failure on the client's side if they did as instructed but didn't maintain their fluency anyways.
Ingrid DelFerro simply wants to continue her father's method without enhancing it with any newer proven sciene in stuttering therapies and now well understood stuttering mechanisms.
My stuttering improved very much for around 1 year. That was the best time of my life. However the psychological "crash" afterwards was horrible as I did my best but couldn't maintain fluency.
Now I use fluency shaping which sounds more alien than the Del-Ferro method but gives me very good control over my speaking while I have no control over my speaking with the Del-Ferro method.
I wish for clients that Ingrid Del Ferro would open up to proven sciene.
Ingrid's father would have appreciated it as he was a scientist person and not a "maintainer".
