Hi Katy, Thank you for your generous comments. You mention that you would like to hear me speak. There are several options. Firstly, I recorded two poems for the ISAD Online Conference back in 2004. Here are the links: (1) Changing the Words Around: (2) Everyone's Different: There are facilities to listen to me reciting them online, although my voice had less intonation fours years ago. Secondly, maybe you may wish to consider suggesting to your tutor that I might address your class (of SLP students). I have performed that role on many occasions, including links via telephone and Skype. The following article touches upon my involvement in this area: 13) HELPING TOMORROW’S THERAPISTS HELP PEOPLE WHO STAMMER That article also provides the answer to your question about what I would wish SLPs to remember when providing therapy to their clients. In addition, I would want them to be fully aware that dealing with stuttering involves so much more than concentrating upon the mechanics of speech. It needs to be dealt with holistically. Thank you for your interest. I wish you every success with your studies. Kindest regards Alan PS And, thirdly, I could chat with you via telephone if you were happy to do that. Please do not provide your contact details via this public forum
