You may have seen stuttering in the headlines over the past year—due, in part, to the election of President Joe Biden, who has spoken openly about his experience as a person who stutters.
Stuttering is having a moment, and we’re taking this occasion to talk about it.
We hear from speech-language pathologist Chris Constantino, a faculty member at Florida State University who studies the experiences of people who stutter. He talks about what he’s heard from his clients and shares what this moment means for him personally—as he, too, is a person who stutters.
Then, a panel of SLPs—Derek Daniels, Courtney Byrd, and Katie Gore—join the show for a conversation about representation and visibility for those who stutter. We discuss the importance of acceptance in assessing and treating stuttering, and we talk about how the experience of stuttering differs from person to person.
