Russ~ I really enjoyed your interpretation of the iceberg analogy. I am currently obtaining my Master's Degree in speech-language pathology and am enrolled in a course focused on stuttering. My professor has shown this analogy to the class, but it was wondeful to read about it in more depth. I just recently did a presentation to our class focusing on the attitudes and feelings associated with PWS and we incorporated this analogy into our discussio! As my course in stuttering progresses, I have come to realize and understand that so much lies "below" the surface of a PWS. Since I will be graduating in May and will (hopefully) have the oppurtunity to work with PWS, I was wondering if you could provide me with some advice and/or guidance when working with PWS. During our presentation, we discussed a number of questionaires and survey's that the SLP would give to the individual that assess attitudes and feelings towards stuttering. How effective or important do you think these questionnaires are when working with PWS???

Thanks, Kara Botts
