Hi! I am Allison. I am a SLP major from the University of Akron.
I was reading Michael Boyle’s paper: “Reflections on the Process of Looking at Stuttering” and I began to have a few questions for people who stutter (PWS). In the third paragraph of that paper Dr. Boyle mentions that “people who stutter can learn from the journeys of others to see that their own experience is not strange, but rather it is shared by many other people. With that realization, we see that we need not go on this journey alone”. I was curious if you could recall the moment you first had a conversation with another PWS and what it was like? What were the circumstances and did it change any of your opinions of stuttering or how you viewed your own situation?
Thank you very much for your time,
