Episode 181: Dealing with the rough days and some tips for children who stutter.

Recorded upon my return from my 6th NSA conference (not that NSA, the other one; the National Stuttering Association. We’re not as covert as the other one. tee hee), I share a few quick video interviews (see below) I conducted with fellow attendees during the four-day conference.

Before recording, I had asked on the Stuttering is Cool Facebook page for questions to ask. Two popular ones were how to deal with rough days and tips for children who stutter.

 

Highlights of the responses include:

  • The only thing consistent about stuttering is it’s inconsistency. Learn how to get through the days when you can’t get the words out.
  • It’s temporary, it’s a moment in time and it will pass. Think abut the successful times. If you did it once, you can do it again.
  • Stuttering will happen regardless. It’s best to let it happen. Learn to be comfortable with the discomfort.
  • Stuttering will be hard, keep your head up, it makes you unique and it will make you stronger in the long run.
  • It’s ok to stutter. Nobody is perfect in this world.
  • It’s completely possible to be successful and a person who stutters.
