Stuttering – A Listener’s Guide: I’m pleased this 2011 video is still being viewed on Vimeo
For over twenty years, before I got involved with other volunteer work, I was actively involved as a volunteer working on behalf of the worldwide stuttering community.
This twenty-one minute video, edited by Steven Toepell of Bohemian Passport Services, is based on a presentation that I made at a meeting of the North York Kiwanis Club in April 2011.
You can access the speaking notes for the talk here.
From time to time, I get questions about the approach, to dealing with stuttering, that worked for me.
For your interest, below is a response to a recent inquiry related to the above-noted online video:
Response to recent inquiry
Pleased to know you saw the video. The program I attended was a three-week program at the Institute for Stuttering Treatment and Research in Edmonton.
In the program, which I attended in July 1987, I in effect re-learned how to speak. I spent several years after that working on maintaining my skills, so that I would not lose the skills that I had learned in Edmonton. It was hard work but it worked out well for me.
I also want to mention the Canadian Stuttering Association (CSA) 25th Anniversary Conference that will be taking place on Oct. 22, 2016 in Toronto:
