I am a male of 83 years. I have many fond past links with the ISA and the BSA (now known as STAMMA).
I have learned in the last 20 years of life that what we think about (focus on) has a strong tendency to happen. This has led me to watch what I am thinking and reduce negative thoughts. We all have negative thoughts but if we are watchful, we can quickly evaluate why they are in our minds and as soon as is reasonable switch them to positive thoughts or just let them go and think of something else.
That is why I do not think of my stammer / stutter, I think of my fluency and how to improve it day by day.
This leads me to ask the questions
Why do organizations involved in helping us, use Stuttering in their titles?
So as against ISA, why not IIFA….International Improving Fluency Association (or something similar)?
