A wise Nerd once said, “Stuttering doesn’t happen in a vacuum”, and neither should our stuttering therapy. That wise “nerd” is Nina Reeves and she is back on the mic for this week’s episode sharing some straight talk about the how and why of involving the whole village in intervention for students who stutter. If you haven’t already listened to the other wise stuff that Nina has shared on the podcast, check them out here. Like so many of us in the field, you likely have some feels around the idea of stuttering intervention, let alone talking about stuttering with parents and teachers. This episode hits on the feels and lays out your mission- to create a long term support system for students who stutter by helping all stakeholders understand stuttering as well as the lived experience of the person who stutters. This episode has some warm-and-fuzzies with a strong core of evidence based practice, emphasizing the role of the SLP in not only the “head space” but the “heart space” of supporting clients and families on their stuttering journey. Listen to Nina, she knows the way! You can learn more about Nina and find tons of free stuttering resources at Stuttering Therapy Resources.
