    Finally we had communication workshop arranged. What we waited since long back.

    Its really good things we did in workshop like voluntarily stuttering, acceptance, Bouncing, Prolongation.

    We also played good energizing games.

    It was really good for stammerers rather attending session in speech therapist's clinic and wasting money.

    Hi Rahul, it is the third workshop in Pune. And next time please register in time as all TISA workshops can accomodate only 10-15 participants. As that is the ideal number for good group dynamics. Better luck next time 🙂

    The communication workshop conducted by TISA (The Indian Stammering Association) on saturday-sunday at infosys was very interesting and illuminating experience for me.
    We learnt so may aspects of stuttering, the techniques which can be used to good effect when you communicate like bouncing, pausing, prolongation, voluntary stuttering and so on & so forth. The presentation round and approaching strangers and using the techniques while asking for their feedback on PWS was a very nice experience for me as well.

    Looking forward to next 3 days of workshop which will be conducted this friday-sunday.
