I Didn’t Know I Stuttered – Episode 95

Posted on: November 12, 2012

Episode 95 features Caitlyn McSally, who grew up in Monroe, Connecticut and went to undergraduate school in New Paltz, New York, about an hour and half from where I live.

Caitlyn is currently in Columbia, South Carolina, studying for her Master’s degree in Speech Language Pathology. When asked why she chose this field, Caitlyn shares it wasn’t because of her speech, like one might think.

When Caitlyn was deciding on college and careers, she didn’t knew she stuttered. She recalls first “hearing herself stutter” about two years ago.

She shares her boyfriend’s response, “Wow, I bet you couldn’t do that again if you tried,” which Caitlyn thought was a great way to address the “odd” thing that had just happened.

Listen in as we discuss Caitlyn’s unique journey, her current therapy experience, covert behaviors, pet peeves and what’s important to her about stuttering.

This was a great conversation. Please leave feedback for Caitlyn in the comment section. Remember, feedback is a gift.

I could totally relate when Caitlyn spoke about learning a lot about her speech through her fluency course. I picked up many important things through my grad. fluency class which I implement on a daily basis now.

Good to know we have more individuals with similar speech conditions getting into the field. Great podcast!
