Title: Exploring the What, When, and Why of Change with Adults Who Stutter
Summary: For people who stutter, durable change requires actively engaging in new communication and coping behaviors. However, everyone begins the change process with different levels of readiness to engage and sustain those new behaviors. In this talk, we will integrate the science and lived experience of change as we discuss the what, when, and why of change for adults who stutter.
