Last week I experienced a first for me in the realm of technology. I had been invited to give my first 3-hour online seminar to the Speech Clinicians attending the Mississippi Speech-Language-Hearing Association Convention. The seminar “Treating Stuttering With Confidence” was held last week.
During the seminar, I was able to show slides along with movies and recordings. However, the audience and I could not see one another. While I was not able to converse with the audience during my presentation or afterward, I have received feedback from some of the participants telling me that they enjoyed the presentation. I did miss the interaction that I have when training clinicians via video conferencing and hope that the next time video technology will allow for face time contact. However, it was wonderful to be able to reach so many people from a great distance.
I am always happy to share my experience and the knowledge that I have gained over the years in the field of stuttering. I do not intend to stop treating the people who stutter in the near future. However, I would like more people than I can treat myself to have the opportunity to receive Dynamic Stuttering Therapy from clinicians who understand the importance of helping their clients develop the normal processes for speaking.
