MSHA Town Hall: Empowerment Series

I had the opportunity to attend all three Town Hall Meetings and each one of them was outstanding.
Kudos to the Executive Board and committee members who organized these meetings, as well as to
each presenter. Thank you for providing the MSHA membership with a positive alternative, due to the
loss of the onsite spring Convention, to earn CEUs!

Want to know more?! Today is International Stuttering Awareness Day! The perfect day to advocate for stutterers across the globe. Many people may not realize roughly 3 million Americans stutter, beginning around the age of two and possibly lasting a lifetime. There is currently no one cause of stuttering, nor is there a cure. A person who stutters could benefit from our help as a speech language pathologist, as we can offer strategies to try and improve the condition or help get them to a place of comfort during conversational speech. Just remember, advocating for a cause goes a long way. For more information on this topic, please click the ASHA link attached - asha.org/stuttering/.
Thank you Sophia Vaughn of Fontbonne University for this information.
