On June 11th, 2013 the Queens Chapter of the National Stuttering Association held their last meeting before the annual conference in Scottsdale, Arizona. The attendees at the meeting were pleased to hear that the chapter will be hosting another Met Game at Citi-Field at the end of the summer. Stay tuned as there will be details to follow regarding this social event! As the meeting got underway, attendees discussed the idea of the variety of blocks that persons who stutter experience. Stuttering is different from one person to the next. We cannot all rely on the same techniques to assist us in easing out of a block or implementing easy onsets to a “hard” word. One method that was suggested to help with anticipating a block was the idea of Voluntary Stuttering. Voluntary Stuttering consists of stuttering on purpose, on words you are or are not intimidated by. One attendee shared that Voluntary Stuttering helps him tremendously but he understands that is not for everyone. Another attendee shared that her stuttering fluctuates so a technique that works for her today may not work for her tomorrow, depending on the severity of her stuttering in certain situations.
