Chennai SHG meeting Report held on 29.12.2013

Dear friends,
The Chennai chapter meeting held on
29th Dec, were attended by the following 8 pws including 3 new ones.Chittibabu, Ganesh, Sufian, Hakkim,
Vijayakumar(New), Baskar (New from Vellore), Balakrishnamurthy (New from
Bangalore) and myself.

In fact Balakrishnan who came from
Bangalore stayed in Chennai for 3 days and Baskar from Vellore (140km from
Chennai) stayed for 2 days. They came for learning speech therapy. I also
taught them which I learned in the year 2001. In fact sufiyan, Hakkim and
Ganesh are also practicing it. Let us see their results after 3 months.

As usual we introduced with each
other. Then I gave a lecture about what is stammering, whether it is curable, about
acceptance of stammering and also importance of speech therapy for those pws who
wants to improve his fluency.
Then I asked each pws to give lecture
using writing board. Everyone has given good lecture. Then I taught a technique
how to speak one word like name, ticket taking, ordering food etc (which is a herculean
task for all pws) without stammer.

I also shown a power point presentation
on “small…small…tips for better speech” which I had given at the recently
concluded NC at Delhi.

I also received a phone call from a
pws from North India who wanted to come over to Chennai centre along with
another pws and stay there for 2 days and learn some techniques. I invited him
to come over to Chennai and stay at the centre itself.
I also request others pws from
Bangalore, Hyderabad, Delhi, Mumbai etc can come over to Chennai centre, stay
for few days and learn some techniques. About 6 to 8 pws can comfortably stay
at a time in the centre.

That’s all from Chennai chapter. I take this opportunity to wish a VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR to all the PWS and let us work hard ourselves in the year 2014 to control our stammering and also spread awareness about stammering to others especially  to new pws.
