I feel relaxed and can breathe calmly
Marko, 24, a Student
My stuttering is extremely severe. The most awkward situations involve meeting unfamiliar groups or relatives that I don’t know very well. It’s most obvious with sounds p and h, so I add words: ‘you know’... I feel highest tension in my throat. Before I start and during speaking my heart beats stronger, I blush ... My stuttering is most intense when I am among unknown people. If I could get rid of stuttering I’d be the happiest man on Earth… VaLMod® 12-day Stuttering Therapy Programme
Ana, 8th Grade
My saddest day happened at school. I started my 1st grade, and later throughout the entire primary school, children bullied me because of stuttering, they insulted me, it was horrible. I lost will to do anything. I did not want to answer questions in classes although I knew all the right answers. Truth is I did not report at least half the times I had been bullied, because every time I would tell my Mum I knew she’d be sad. I was treated unfairly at school… VaLMod® 12-day Stuttering Therapy Programme
Maja, 34, a Mother of a 6-year Old Boy
My son started stuttering when he was three. At first, I did not think it was important as it happened only occasionally, but with time it became more severe. It began when he started his nursery school. I can’t find out what happened there... But by now his stuttering has become severe. Sometimes, he doesn’t even want to talk, he just nods. I’m afraid that he will close himself off from the outside world, I’m scared of him starting school, being bullied… 5-Day VaLMod® Stuttering Therapy Programme for Pre-schoolers
Suzana, 38, a Mother of a 10-year Old Boy
I am a mother of a 10-year old boy. He is clever and smart. For him the problems are not oral tests at school, but the written ones in which he is always graded badly. It seems as if he cannot understand the task. He has issues with understanding the written tasks and he needs more time to solve them. He drops out letters from words or he interchanges them and he does not like reading mandatory books. I study along with him. He will soon start the 5th grade and he still cannot study alone. I would like to help him...VaLMod ČiPi Reading and Writing Programme
Nada, 45, Husband Has Had a Stroke
My husband had a stroke at the age of 32. My life turned upside down. I take care of him every day. We have tried every rehabilitation, some progress can be noticed, but I can see that he could do more. He’s young, he wants to live. I expect him to recover, even if it takes 20 years. I want to find the best professionals for him so that our communication can be even better. I want him to walk, to chew normally, to laugh, to communicate, to be able to do his daily routines… MNRI Reflexes
Obiteljski pristup i briga za svaku osobu s punom pažnjom o usvojenoj terapiji. I redovitim kontrolama.
Meni se kod VaLModa najviše sviđa to što kad dođeš tamo i objašnjavaš neke osjećaje i situacije vezane uz mucanje, oni to sve razumiju. Dok recimo, kad to pričaš nekom drugom, osjećaš se bedasto. A čovjek se ugodno osjeća ondje gdje ga razumiju.
Hvala puno VaLMod timu! Neizmjerno smo Vam zahvalni! Toliko ljubavi, pažnje i profesionalnosti moraju dati rezultate! Nema dana da se ne sjetimo svih vas(posebno tijekom svakodnevnih vježbi doma:))! Naš svijet ste promijenili i do neba Vam hvala na tome!! Puno pozdrava od Marka!
Eto ja sam jedan staaariii polaznik i učim engleski...
A jedva sam govorila i na hrvatskom....
Novim polaznicima želim uspješnu terapiju, da imaju dovoljno vjere u stručni tim, dovoljno hrabrosti i odlučnosti, te mnogo ugodnih trenutaka u ValMod centru i Varaždinu za koje sam siguran da će pamtiti cijelog života. Mi smo iz prethodne grupe polaznika i za ValMod program i tim imamo samo riječi hvale i divljenja.
Za cijeli tim imam samo riječi hvale. I sama sam bila u logopedskom centru ValMod (2003) koji su mi pomogli i uz njih sam rješila svoje probleme sa mucanjem! I svaki puta kad zamucam u nekim situacijama sjetim se dr. Novosela i dr. Tatjane da treba polako govorit i tada sve ide.
Tko zaista ima probleme sa mucanjem preporučam ValMod - pomoći će vam sigurno.
I cannot but honour the entire VaLMod team by saying that they have all helped me very, very much. They are not only experts in stuttering therapies but also beautiful people who love what they do and who transfer that love, positive energy and kindness to everyone who comes to the Centre. Warmest Greetings!
Wonderful experts and first and foremost great people whom I remember with warmth in my heart even though it has already been 12 years since my therapy. You do not treat only stuttering, you treat the human soul. Thank you!
They are excellent: we couldn’t be more satisfied! They treat not only stuttering but also children who do not speak at all!
ValMod, led by Prof Tatjana, are a successful team helping young people with pronunciation issues (stuttering), but we must not forget about Prof Darko Novosel, who developed this learning method. Everyone in the team is a successful and very nice person.
Dr Novosel and his team helped me not only to resolve my stuttering problem but also ‘put my life in order’ as well. The relationship with my family, my mind-set... everything. I love you and I think about you a lot The phrase: I feel relaxed and can breathe calmly, is my rescue in every stressful situation, which there are many.
I accompanied my son, but I myself benefited from the therapy as well. What can I say, you’re wonderful! I would recommend this to everyone who stutters.
The best and the most professional.
My son attended the Programme 8 years ago and we have resolved our serious problem... We are delighted with the entire team of doctors, I can only praise you highly and I would recommend you to everyone!
"My dearest, I still remember you gladly, although it’s been 10-ish years since we first met. There are things and people that change other people’s lives and get them going and you most definitely are one of them! My most sincere congratulations for your well-deserved success and warmest greetings from Dubrovnik!"
Everyone using our services accesses them on an individual basis, because we feel that we must treat everyone as an individual and adapt to their life habits and needs. It is only with such an approach that we can provide a superior service and satisfactory results.
Individually Tailored Approaches
Our greatest asset is our holistic approach to voice, speech and language difficulties. Staff at the VaLMod Centre are comprised of experts who have trained at the Faculty of Education and Rehabilitation and have continually improved their skills at the Educational Institute of Dr Svetlana Masgutova in Orlando (USA).
We are equipped with the most up-to-date technology available in the Republic of Croatia. For thirty years we have used biofeedback in our stuttering therapies and have developed our own innovative and sophisticated devices that are the result of many years of work and experience in speech and language rehabilitation. We are equipped with devices that stimulate the nervous system to create the automation required for good reading, writing and speech and language skills.
Within the VaLMod Centre, apart from our speech therapy services, we also conduct neuro-sensomotor stimulation of the nervous system for cases of stuttering, speech disorders, reading and writing difficulties, cerebral palsy, post-stroke conditions, autism, underdeveloped speech and language...
Za mucanje nema lijeka. Potrebna je rehabilitacija u kontinuiranoj, dosljednoj i konstantnoj primjeni naučenih tehnika i metoda. Mucanje je poremećaj, nije bolest
