Sign the petition for a better tomorrow..

Peter Reitzes of Stutter talk is sending a petition to ASHA to ensure that SLPs honor its ethics and dont lead the stutterers up the garden path.. This is important. We all (-I haven’t met an exception so far-) have suffered at the hands of some or other SLPs who would either over charge us for therapy (just because we are desperate for cure) – or who would promise us impossible (“cure in 12 days”etc.). I have practiced as a medical doctor for over ten years- and I can say with confidence that while other clinical branches (medicine, surgery, ENT, ophthalmology) have some kind of professional and state control over the conduct of its practitioners- field of stammering therapy is like “wild west”. Anyone can do anything and get away. But the primary responsibility lies with us- the PWS. We need to be more proactive and informed. Here is a chance for you to play your role.

    American society is way ahead of ours in terms of understanding human foibles. Nevertheless, signing this petition is the least i could do, which i did already 🙂

    thanks Sachin.
