Covert Stuttering: Transitioning from Covert to Overt
Presented by Vivian Sisskin
Many people who stutter who can "pass" as fluent in daily life are desperate to do so despite the emotional cost: anxiety, dread, and fear of potential stuttering; exhausting "mental gymnastics" to avoid words or remain silent; and poor self-confidence as a communicator. Adults with a covert profile of stuttering share their experiences and provide insight into their personal journey toward self-acceptance. Vivian Sisskin, M.S., CCC-SLP, BCS-F, Clinical Professor, University of Maryland, College Park presents the basics of a treatment plan that supports stutterers with a covert profile to embrace their identity and confidently say all they want, when they want.

As a nonprofit Foundation, we strive to keep our prices to the bare minimum to better serve those who stutter.
