Stuttering tips, part 1 – the phone, dating, jobs, small talk

Episode #189: You’re making a phone call and growing more anxious about stuttering with each ring. What do you do? Learn telephone survival tips and master other speaking situations in dating, job interviews, small talk, body language, and stuttering your name as Christine Dits, community manager of the Stutter Social app, shares her methods for dealing with stuttering and building resilience.

We also talk a bit about introvert and extroverts who stutter and where they get their energy in social situations.

Christine stuttered since she was 6 years old and most recently became a licensed SLP (CCC-SLP to be exact). She is a returning Stuttering is Cool guest and frequent co-host of the Stuttering is Cool videos.

This is the first in a series where I’ll be asking Stutter Social hosts to share the methods they use to survive stuttering and build resilience. I believe resilience is the key to living the life you want to live in spite of your speech. After all, life is too short to worry about perfection! Plus, nobody is perfect.

This episode is brought to you by Stuttering is Cool: A Guide to Stuttering in a Fast-Talking World. It’s full of comics and tips about stuttering survival and overcoming everyday speaking situations in work, play, romance, and more. Order your copy now!
