Make Room For The Stuttering

Away At Friends Conference

Posted on: July 24, 2009

Lucky me!  I am traveling again this week, this time to Tampa, Florida, where I will attend the 2009 Friends Conference. I am scheduled to arrive late Wednesday night, so by this reading, I will be into second day of what promises to be an exciting weekend for kids and adults that stutter, and those that love people that stutter.

Last year, I attended my first Friends conference in New Orleans. I was hooked. The intimacy of the conference provided a much different feel. Everything is kid and family friendly, right down to the family style meals.

I will be volunteering to work at the Friends store, and hope to help out with two workshops. One will be on Voluntary Stuttering with parents. The other will be digital story-telling with kids and teens. We will record brief clips that can be posted to You Tube and the Friends webpage.

I will be back on Sunday July 26, and will write about some of the best moments. It will probably be hard to choose!
