Thomas David Kehoe demonstrated great inventiveness and engineering skill in creating several devices and apps to assist and improve the quality of life of people with speech difficulties. He has always been quick to respond to solve any technical difficulties arising and shows genuine care for the people using his technologies. His devices are produced in line with current research evidence and he has always been helpful in educating the public and professionals on research into motor speech disorders.
Regarding Mr. Kehoe's books, they provide exceptional, comprehensive guides to persons who stutter. He presents the difficulty of stuttering as one that is definitely correctable, given time and effort. His books have encouraged and aided me towards improving my individual speech therapy and I see daily improvements. The Small Talk device, discussed in the book, has had a significant influence as both a training aid and as a support in real-time speaking situations. I am personally grateful to Mr. Kehoe for his efforts in furthering the practices for speech therapy and for an improved quality of life for those who stutter. Patrick McReaken, PWS
For decades I have seen the dedication of Thomas David Kehoe to people who stutter, through his work in developing first-class products of altered auditory feedback; through his numerous writings conveying useful information about stuttering; and through his websites devoted to improving the lives of people who stutter. He is a person who deeply cares about people who stutter.
For many years I used delayed auditory feedback telephone devices marketed by his company, Casa Futura Technologies, and with their assistance, often spoke fluently or with reduced disfluency. I also used them as practice tools for shaping gentle onsets.
On a personal note I "found" my wife in a stuttering-related penpals website created by Mr. Kehoe, who is as concerned with the personal happiness of people who stutter as he is about the excellent products that his company sells.
I heartily recommend the products of Casa Futura Technologies, and the expertise of Thomas David Kehoe.
