    Great episode! Dr Sachin is so giving and caring. Like you, I believe this first ever Indian National Conference will be a great success, even if they have only 10 people there.
    I loved some of the things he said – about stutterers belonging to a “biological family” and that self-help and acceptance is often more beneficial than therapy.
    I wish them well – I know it will be the first of many.

    Great authentic episode with the phone ringing! 🙂

  4. Thanks Dr. Sachin and Daniele for this wonderful episode. Yes, i do think that the National Conference is scheduled at the right time of the year (keeping in mind that its the inauguration of an event of its kind for PWS in India) and as far as the responses are concerned, well, its only gonna grow from here, year after year. I’m sure that the awareness would grow every year coz people would definitely start noticing it. And as a consequence the number of people participating in the conference would only rise up every year. So it doesn’t matter even if we have lesser participation this year than expected coz what the heck its our very first conference.
