Being objective about our stammer

At SHG today, we decided to fill out a similar grid to: 1) help us look at our stammering in an objective/neutral way 2) see how we are improving, or how we could improve 3) have a common language at SHG with which to talk about our stammering, share


Here are the different types of difficulties we listed:
– Silent Block/ Air Block
– Struggled Repetition
– Silent Block w/ Airflow
– Gag Reflex / Ulti Feeling
– Throat / Head / Jaw / Neck / Hand Movement/Tension
– Facial Distortions
– Eye Contact
– Emotions: shy, anxiety, guilty, inferiority, embarrassment, self-pity, jealousy (comparison with others)


This SHG meeting, we went through Session 2 in the TISA SHG Manual Guide (you can download this if you upload something/anything writing to Scribd).

We had fun in the session where we made up a story while using bouncing. We talked about a Princess, Owls, Empire, Party, Sleeping Pill, and marriage. Chinmay, Vishal, Srinivas, Saurabh will be writing more about their experiences at SHG.
