Speaking Engagements

I am available to do speaking engagements in person or via Skype.  I present to communication disorder undergraduate and graduate students, school district speech and language therapists, and parent groups. Following is feedback from these sessions:

“You aptly highlighted the controversy that exists in the field and the importance of informing parents about the various options for therapy and the pros and cons of each.  Your responses to the questions my students posed were honest, insightful, and thought-provoking. I know that this class will be a memorable event in their graduate studies and shape their future work with people who stutter.  Superb!”

“I want to thank you for sharing your personal story.  I so agree with your philosophy about stuttering, which was a big part of my training in speech pathology.  Your message is a very valuable one for parents, teachers and speech pathologists to hear.”

“Your presentation has given me the confidence to be able to educate the parents on this approach so that I can tell them how I think it should be done, rather than just doing what the parents want and “fixing” their child.  I would love if you could do this presentation to every SLP group I know actually!  I plan to contact my alma mater and let them know so you could possibly do this presentation for their current graduate students pursuing their degree in SLP.  I also have SLP friends in other school districts that I plan to tell about your  presentation.  Hopefully they will get in touch with you as I feel that your message is important and powerful!”
