Written for speech therapists and doctors, this book gives a precise, practical summary of anthroposophical therapeutic speech. Speech formation, or creative speech, is based on the ancient art of recitation and drama, and was revived and fundamentally redeveloped by Rudolf and Marie Steiner in the early 1920s. The therapeutic work is based on speech exercises and indications on how to use them, which were given by Rudolf Steiner.
