Chris S, one of our members, was kind and inspired enough to do a write up on what happened in Brooklyn on Monday. See below 🙂
We had a great meeting last night on a cold Monday, full of vibrant and sometimes challenging discussion. In all, about ten people who stutter made it out – including a few there for only their second time – along with two SLPs in training.
The group also discussed the notion of whether we truly can advertise and stutter openly is all situations, including business, in a society that values efficiency and quickness. One stutterer expressed doubt that he could openly stutter in the business world, presenting the example of stuttering on a large conference call. Others in the room, assuaged that concern however, contesting that, truly, we the stutterer are the ones often most concerned with our stutter and the way it sounds. The real key is open communication and spreading information about your stutter. Many have found that, more often than not, people will be happy to listen!
