Make Room For The Stuttering

At The NSA Conference

Posted on: July 9, 2009

I am at the National Stuttering Association annual conference in Scottsdale, Arizona. By this date, I should be in full stuttering mode, attending workshops, meeting new people and re-kindling old friendships.

I have brought my camera and camcorder with me, and really plan to capture some of the moments of the conference. It is indeed special to be among hundreds of stutterers, and feel free to be oneself.

Some of the workshops I am helping out with include: the Toastmasters Demo meeting, where a small group of us run a mini-meeting so people who stutter who are thinking about joining can see first hand what its all about. That’s on Friday morning at 8:30 (ugh, the time- but I’ll make it). Then later on Friday I will be participating on a panel with Peter and Eric from Stutter Talk.

Then on Saturday afternoon, I am co-facilitating a workshop with my room mate Patrice Nolan. We are presenting “Pushing Past The Fear”.

I am confident this will be a great experience. I will share upon my return. I hope to tweet some updates too!
