The King's Speech continues to carry royal momentum into this year's Academy Awards, receiving 12 nominations, including Best Picture and Best Director, and nods for its three leads, Colin Firth, Geoffrey Rush, and Helena Bonham Carter.We're happy to share an article that Clarence Page, award-winning journalist and AIS Board member, wrote about the film at the end of last month. This touching piece includes experiences from Clarence's childhood and quotes from AIS client Adam Marlowe.Adam shared about both the film and his experience at AIS, saying, "In reality what really helped me was what you saw in the movie, a long-term therapy, working on your voice and your breathing but also on how you view yourself as a stutterer in the world."Read Clarence's article on the Chicago Tribune website.
