Hi Christy, You're welcome. And thanks for reading my paper and for your kind words. I'm glad you enjoyed it. ..... Yes indeed, CONFIDENCE is the key word here. You can learn to confidently communicate very well and stutter at the same time. People filter out easy stuttering if you have something worthwhile to say and say it confidently. FLUENCY and COMMUNICATION are two different concepts. People honestly don't care much if you stutter but they definitely DO care how well you communicate. And confidence is the key to good communications. ..... Conveying that to people who stutter isn't always easy. They are so focused on fluency that they tend to be blinded to effective communication. And teaching that can be a real challenge! Good luck! ..... I wish you the very best, Christy! ..... Russ
