Sitting in a circle around the teacher, 10-year-old Hiten Vyas couldn't get the words out to ask questions. He struggled, but his speech was blocked. He went home confused, but soon he knew. He had a stammer. In fear and anxiety, he sealed his lips. Ashamed, he hid his stammer even from his family. He remembers how at fifteen, every morning he would list situations he would have to speak in and avoid them. He wouldn't pick up the phone, wouldn't attend parties. He believed no girl would accept him. He was labelled shy. When he had to speak, he resorted to long pauses, chose words he could speak without a struggle, or finished the sentence quickly. At the hint of stammering, he took a breath and forced the words out. But his anxiety stayed. Stammering wrecked his confidence, plunged him in low self-esteem.

Hiten Vyas, PhD, is now a Life Coach and Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) Master Practitioner. And he definitely takes phone calls. His metamorphosis is a life lesson for all... Read more of this Hindu article..

Stuttering: Inspiring Stories and Professional Wisdom – This is the first publication from StutterTalk – a well known free podcast service, which openly discusses stuttering and features people actually stuttering on air. The StutterTalk podcast has published more than 350 episodes over the past five years and features people who stutter (PWS), therapists, parents, academics and all kinds of people. Stuttering: Inspiring Stories and Professional Wisdom is a collection of excellent essays, edited by Peter Reitzes, David Reitzes with editing help from Nan Bernstein Ratner, Bob Quesal, J. Scott Yaruss, Walter H Manning and others. Information is up to date, authentic and comes from diverse sources. The intended audience is PWS, their families, colleagues, friends, therapists and graduate students. This book is available as a paperback for $12.99 and as an e-book or download for $5.99 (INR 340).. http://stuttertalk.com/stutterbook/
The book is divided into two sections. The first sixteen essays are under the heading Inspiring Stories and are written by PWS (one from a spouse of a PWS). The final nine chapters (Professional Wisdom) are written from reputed teachers and clinicians – people who day and night worry about how to make therapy more effective and relevant to the needs of PWS. We all – PWS and therapists, will learn something useful in this book. By the way, Peter is a speech-language pathologist (SLP) and a PWS. In the United States, many PWS turn to speech therapy as a career, in search of lasting solutions and also to offer better support to other PWS.
