Make Room For The Stuttering

Taking On Courage

Posted on: March 19, 2013

It’s amazing to see how many people who stutter are using social media to bolster their confidence and speaking skills.

The rise of Facebook groups for the stuttering community has really spurred people to take and create more opportunities to share a little about themselves in ways that were previously off-limits.

This evening, I strolled over to Stuttering Arena (on Facebook – a closed group with over 14oo members!) and watched several videos of people introducing themselves and stuttering openly on camera. This trend has been going on for months, but I usually don’t have time to watch and listen to more than one or two.

I think it’s amazing that people are taking these risks to open up and share.

It takes a lot of courage to record yourself stuttering and posting it publicly on a social media site.

Kudos to those of you doing so! If you haven’t, would you consider it?

The process made me nervous, but I made a video where I showed the tips I’ve been using to become more fluent. You have done a ton of podcasts, Pam, but would you be willing to make a video? I’d watch it!

I’ve done a lot of videos in the past but nothing recent and nothing I’ve posted in SA.
Yes I will do a current one, once I think of something interesting to talk about!
