  • "Are you even listening to me?: Conversation about being an adult stutterer"

  • Sep 30, 2020 from 7:00pm to 8:00pm
  • Location: https://zoom.us/my/learning15
  • Description:

    If you are an adult stutterer, you know what it can be like to give a presentation to a group of peers, to make a phone call, to order take-out... Your heart races, your palms sweat, your words in your brain go blank as you fear how you begin to sound as you talk.

    You know what you have to say is important and you wish like anything that you can be the person next to you who doesn't have to work so hard to speak. When you finally get the words out you think people are paying more attention to how the words sounded then what the words actually meant.

    But you push through and you keep going and you try to remain calm to show everyone you are not affected- but you are. And their eye rolls or apparent good-natured wanting to finish your word for you makes you bitter and angry inside.

    I am excited to talk about my journey with others on ECEL on September 30th. If you have experiences to share, are an adult stutterer, or would like to know more about what it's like, please join us in the live d
