Il lavoro sulla balbuzie deve essere intenso, appassionato e serio. Condividere le esperienze e le ricerche è fondamentale per dare a tutti una speranza! Grazie. dott. Di Liberto Biagio

Parents’ level of scaffolding, support and acceptance may predict the outcome of children who stutter/stammer. My neighbour’s story:

Olvie was my neighbour and family friend back in my hometown. He had a moderate stutter, but this did not deter him from achieving his goals. His parents played a vital part in his formative years and beyond, by encouraging and supporting him; for to them his stutter was never a deterrent factor. This family did not regard Olvie’s stutter as an impairment or hindrance, but rather focused on developing and honing his many skills and talents which included public speaking. Over time Olvie emerged as a well-respected community leader, educator, role model and family man. Additionally, he is an excellent, effective public speaker!!!!He has held leadership positions in his local church, school system, government and also managed his own small business. In his last capacity before retirement from public office he served as a government (permanent) secretary in charge of a department. Today he is still managing his business and as always is active in his church and community. Cheers to Olvie and his insightful, adoring parents!!!YOU STUTTER, YES YOU CAN!!!!

Celebrating International Women's Day with discussion about women and stuttering.

The International Stuttering Association and Stutter Social will be celebrating International Women's Day with three special Hangouts on Air livestreamed on YouTube on Saturday, March 8, 2014. In honour of the special day, topics will cover the woman's experiences with stuttering, including the social pressures of being overt vs covert and what effect stuttering has on women's roles as daughters, mothers, sisters, and spouses.

It is said that 1% of the world's population stutters and 1 in 5 people who stutter are women. The three Hangouts will be facilitated by Stutter Social hosts Annie Bradberry, Pamela Mertz and Anita Blom. Each of them are prominent leaders in the worldwide stuttering community, contributors to the International Stuttering Awareness Day conference, and have overcome their personal challenges with growing up stuttering.

Each of the Hangouts on Air will be an hour long and will take place at various times throughout the day:

• 3 p.m. Central European Time (Stockholm, Sweden) hosted by Anita Blom
• 3 p.m. Eastern Time (New York, USA) hosted by Pamela Mertz
• 3 p.m. Pacific Time (San Francisco, USA) hosted by Annie Bradberry

The broadcasts can be viewed on the International Stuttering Association website and the Stutter Social YouTube channel. In addition to the panel of invited guests in the Hangout, viewers can participate by asking questions in the comments area on YouTube as well as on Twitter with the hashtag #pwschat.

We hope you'll celebrate International Women's Day with us!
