Make Room For The Stuttering

Their First NSA Conference

Posted on: July 27, 2011

My Flip digital recorder was a great tool to have with me at the 2011 NSA Conference. When I realized that first-timers had been asked to sum up their experiences at the closing ceremonies, I pressed the record button.

It is so empowering to hear people express how moving and significant it is to participate in the stuttering community for the first time. Both Katie and Dustin indeed did that – they both helped to facilitate workshops too! I could not have done that at my first conference!

Listen and watch as Katie and Dustin sum up their conference experiences, in their own words and their own voices. They have made room for the stuttering. Have you?

(I did receive permission from both Katie and Dustin to post this clip on the blog, in case you’re wondering!)

Please leave comments here for either or both, so everyone who tunes in to this blog can see them. Not everyone hangs out on Facebook!

Glad that I could make Dustin feel welcome. Next year he can do the same to another “first timer.” And it goes on.

Yeah Bernie, thanks. I just watched myself and I got chills….This is the first time that I have watched myself and heard myself on video.
