Product description


... includes a number of witty, evocative, and hugely enjoyable essays that I would highly recommend. --Peter O'Sullivan, British Stammering Association, BSA

About the Author

John C. Harrison showed a marked disfluency at the age of three and two years later underwent several weeks of speech therapy in New York City. But these early efforts at therapy were not productive and he struggled with stuttering throughout college and well into adulthood. John s involvement in a broad variety of personal growth programs over three decades have given him a unique insight into the nature and dynamics of the stuttering person. Today, he is fully recovered and no longer deals with stuttering. One of the earliest members of the National Stuttering Project (now the National Stuttering Association), he was a long-term member of the Board of Directors and previously served for 14 years as the NSA s Associate Director. He also served for nine years as the editor of the NSA's monthly newsletter Letting GO. John has run workshops for the stuttering and the professional communities across the U.S. and Canada as well as in England, Ireland, Denmark, Sweden, Norway and Australia, and he has been a regular presenter NSA national conferences. He has been published in Advance Magazine and the Journal of Fluency Disorders. He has presented at ASHA and CSHA conventions as well as at the First World Congress on Fluency Disorders in Munich, Germany. He was a keynote speaker at the 2002 Annual Meeting of the British Stammering Association, the Seventh World Congress of the International Stuttering Association held in 2004 in Freemantle, Australia, and the 2007 NSA Annual Conference in Atlanta.
