October 2016 Recap

Hi Everyone! Happy International Stuttering Awareness Day!!!  The Queens Chapter met on Monday, October 17th at the Flushing YMCA. Attendees discussed their appreciation for the NSA and support groups to help them realize they are not alone. The meeting kicked off with a great discussion about what persons who stutter would like their listeners to know. PWS often have different views about what they would like their listener to do while they are blocking such as maintaining eye contact and not finishing their sentences. They agreed that stuttering makes them more sensitive and have more patience. Another discussion also involved stuttering in the work place and various situations in which co-workers have been supportive about stuttering and blocking. It is important for us to remember that stuttering is a part of the person who we are, it does not define us and we should use our voice to be heard. The meeting was a great way for PWS to recharge their batteries and help us remember that there are others out there who experience what we do on a daily basis! If you would like to attend our next meeting and join in on the fun, it will take place on Monday, ...
