Episode #238: I’m back in Montreal for the Association bégaiement communication (ABC) annual conference! It’s a very special conference for me as it was also the launch of the French version of my book, Stuttering is Cool: A Guide to Stuttering in a Fast-Talking World!
Join me in my conversations with:
- Claire Norman, founder and director of of Stammerers Through University Consultancy (S.T.U.C.) who flew in from the U.K. to give her keynote about growing up stuttering and founding S.T.U.C.;
- Caroline Bredeson, an SLP who is quite active with her work at the University of Ottawa including working with people who stutter and, at the Official Languages and Bilingualism Institute (OLBI), motivating people to speak their second language and her briliant “Linguistic Risk-Taking Passport” and its stuttering edition;
- Audrey Bigras and her workshop about the myths and misinformation about stuttering over the media and Internet (“fake news”); and
- Genviève Lamoureux and her experiences with covert stuttering in university, becoming a translator, translating my book, and meeting her boyfriend, Daniel Aubé, who joins us to share his experiences of being a lawyer who stutters.
And then I get lost trying to find the train station on my way back home to Toronto!
Information about ordering Bégayer, c’est cool : conseils pour survivre dans un monde pressé, the French version of my book, is available on the ABC website.
This episode is brought to you by my book, Stuttering is Cool: A Guide to Stuttering in a Fast-Talking World. Packed with tips, stories, encouragement and comics for fearless stuttering and joy.
