Fundamentals of Chirophonetics
Dr. Baur and his wife Dr. Ilse Baur developed Chirophonetics therapy in 1956. Since that time, Chirophonetics has been successfully used in remedial and educational work. It has shown outstanding results with the developmentally disabled, children with behavior difficulties, adults suffering from strokes, as well as children with speech and language difficulties. It has also supplemented and supported prescribed medicines in cases of chronic illness.
In Dr. Baur’s experience, speech is more than a means of communication – each sound of spoken language has a life of its own, with qualities and properties of remarkable potential.
His years of research and treatment of communication disorders in both children and adults, coupled with in-depth studies of philology and Anthroposophy have given Dr. Baur a deep understanding of the creative power of the spoken word in all its manifestations.
