Hi Amanda, Thank you for your generous response to my paper. I genuinely believe that eliminating avoidance assisted me greatly in coming to terms with my stuttering issues. On May 4, 2000 (that day remains indelibly imprinted upon my memory), I made a pact with myself that I would never again avoid any word, letter, sound or situation. I have been true to myself since that date and it has paid immense dividends. In order to gain a better understanding of the implications of avoidance, you may wish to read my earlier reply to Morganne Lawrence (dated October 21) and the following poem that I wrote for the 2004 ISAD Online Conference: ‘Changing the Words Around’: I wish you every success with your studies. Kindest regards Alan
