Undergraduate Student Question

Hello. My name is Amber Yado and I am an undergraduate student from California State University Fullerton. And I am excited to learn. I wanted to ask what are your favorite moments of this conference? I also wanted to ask what are the main takeaways that we should have with us after this conference? Also, I wanted to know what people’s emails are for the people in the conference so that I am able to learn more. Thank you so much, everyone!

Undergraduate Student Question — 7 Comments

  1. Hi Amber

    Thank you for your questions.

    Why I love this online conference so much is that it gathers PWS and professionals in the field of stuttering, from all parts of the world. The different experiences, the different cultures, the variety of papers, videos, poems. And most of all those amazing kids and teens who I wish I had met when I was their age! And of course being on this panel, answering all kinds of questions, sharing, educating, and hopefully help students like you to get a better understanding of what it’s like to stutter and how you can help us.

    I hope that the main takeaway is to get a better understanding of what stuttering is all about, what life with a stutter is all about, and what people can do to help. You can not only learn what it’s like to stutter, different therapies and approaches, interesting research from different parts of the world, but also use October to ask questions to PWS and to SLPs with a long background of working with PWS, and really interact with the presenters.

    If you want people’s emails, ask the presenters if they want to share that with you, when commenting on their papers.

    Keep (them) talking and happy ISAD

    • Hey, Anita!

      Thank you so much! As someone who is studying to become an SLP, it is always good to learn not only from the clinician point of view, but also from the client’s point of view. And reading people’s articles is very helpful! We also all appreciate that you wrote an article and shared our point of view as well. When I do become an SLP one day, I would like to write articles for here too if I can. How long does the process usually take to write the article?

        I’m so happy you tuned in, which shows how dedicated you are. 🙂 You don’t have to be an SLP to write an article. Everyone is welcome! You just follow the instructions in the website, send it to us, we’ll review and comment, and if all is according to the instructions, you’re in. 🙂

        Happy ISAD

          Oh, how cool is that? Thank you for the advice. How long does it usually take to write an article and to come up with an idea to write for it?

            I all depends on what you want to submit. Sometimes personal stories, poems and thoughts and videos can come from the heart and just take 15-30 min, while scientific papers (again, no need to be an SLP or researcher) will need some more backup, f ex with underlying links to research to prove your statements, and can take days or even weeks. So it all depends on you and what you want to share. 🙂 The idea often comes naturally. It can be something from your own experiences in life or work that you’d like to share, or to discuss and get feedback on. Browse through the papers and you’ll see the huge variety of papers and formats, which makes this online conference something for all. 🙂 Also, it’s not just for PWS and/or SLPs. It’s for parents, teachers, neighbors, family members, employers, etc etc. So do share this conference in your channels. 🙂

            Thanks for all you interest and your many questions. We love that, as that’ll make you an amazing therapist!

              Thank you so much! I am happy to learn! I was wondering what advice you had for future clinicians to use what we learned from this conference and add it to future speech therapy sessions. Since everyone is different, I can imagine that there are plenty of ways.

              • Hey, Anita!

                Thank you so much for the wonderful advice! Is it okay if I use this conversation for a project that I have? One of the things that my professor wants us to do is screenshot 3 conversations in this conference (from clinicians, people who stutter, or people who is a family member of someone who stutters) and have us talk about it in our project.
