This year is our first time running a forum where you can ask questions of other specific People Who Stutter (PWS). You might have questions about ‘What do you do when…’ or looking to get an opinion on how others might approach a particular situation. You can see the list of PWS providing this advice at this link.
To participate, you must be logged in to ask a question. After you log in, select ‘New’; ‘Post’ from the top menu and enter the title and details. Be sure to set the category to ‘2019 Talk to a PWS’ on the right side of the page or your question will not display on this page.
Your post/comment will need to be approved by the team. It might take up to twelve hours before your post/comment appears.
Only the original questioner and any of the selected PWS can reply/post to a specific question. One or more of the selected PWS may choose to respond to questions, so you do not need to direct your question to a specific individual.
