After recently completing a weekend comedy course, this was my first stand up comedy open mic. It is truly an amazing experience when you can make people laugh.
A group of speech and language therapists from different countries created this video in order to share information about stuttering and raise public awareness.

I was recently invited to speak to high school students who stutter. Details of the program are below.
Speech-Language Pathologists from the North Coast Region of the Department of Education conducted an intensive fluency program for adolescents who stutter in the second week of the 2019 September/October school holidays. The program was attended by 10 students from 12 to 16 years of age and ran for 4 full days at Maroochydore State School. The students reported benefits in their speech but also their confidence and self-concept, and valued meeting other teenagers who stutter and making new friends. It also provided a valuable training opportunity for 10 University of Queensland Speech Pathology Students who assisted throughout the week.
