Episode 28 of the Stuttering.Me micropodcast is up

February 20th, 2009 No comments

Episode 28 is up.  On Pull-Outs, Self-Diagnoses, and Personal Empowerment.  “Speech Therapy for the Severe Older Adolescent and Adult Stutterer” is required reading for those who want to know more about stuttering modification technqiues.  On an incredible case of self-diagnoses and the release of a personal burden.  Finally, since we’re still struggling relative to the science of stuttering, we’re often left with the notion of active personal empowerment as a means of improving our quality of life.

Episode 27 of the Stuttering.Me micropodcast is up

February 17th, 2009 No comments

Episode 27 is up.  And I actually like this one.  While teaching CSD 521 (graduate class in stuttering), it dawned on me that person-first terminoligy (person who stutters, rather than stutterer) is actually counterproductive.  If there is no shame in stuttering, then what’s wrong with being a stutterer?  Nothing!  If there’s shame in stuttering, then we try to minimize that shame by person-first terminology.  Well, I reject such a premise, because being who I am is 100% alright by me.

Episode 22 of the Stuttering.Me micropodcast is up

February 10th, 2009 6 comments

Episode 22 is up.  A 5 minute review of the grad stuttering class.  In short, there is an entire group of stuttering theories that (at their core) believe that stuttering is cause by anxiety.  And this is really a personal character flaw, because people who stutter can’t “take the pressure” and breakdown under stress.  I’m not easily offended, but such prejudice remains tough for me to swallow every day.  And unfortunately, many an SLP (as well as society) continues to believe these (lies).  But if you’re a Stuttering.me listener, you won’t (both on a cognitive and emotional level)!
