Make Room For The Stuttering

Don’t Forget the ISAD Conference

Posted on: October 8, 2009

Remember the incredible on-line conference over on The Stuttering Home Page  is going on right now, through October 22, which is officially International Stuttering Awareness Day. On that day, people all over the world will educate and raise awareness about stuttering and stammering.

It is up to us, people who stutter, to educate the larger community. We can do that by being up front about stuttering, talking about it,and being honest about our feelings.

There are some excellent papers over on the conference, covering all things stuttering related. And the interactive comment section features questions and comments from all over.

There are several papers on the Covert Stuttering experience.

Please read Cathy Olish’s paper on her stuttering journey. She still very much uses covert behaviors to keep her stuttering hidden. Her story is heartfelt and poignant.

I will also shamelessly plug mine, Things I Learned In Therapy. Please read and leave comments on all the papers that interest you.

Another one I found interesting, that maybe will result in more research, Understanding Sex Differences in Developmental Stuttering.

Please read, comment, and ask questions on these papers or at “The Professor is In”.  We  learn so much from each other.

Thanks for the announcement. I am at an ISAD workshop in SF right now and we are doing some websurfing of stuttering websites together. I came across your name and just loved the idea of a “Stutter Rockstar”.

In the past I’ve talked about “stuttering enthusiasts”, but rockstars are even better.
