I’m not sure how I haven’t come across this before – but here is a short talk by Carolyn Cheasman (who is herself a person who stutters) on mindfulness and its usefulness for Speech Therapists. Carolyn also runs excellent courses for people who stutter (as well as Speech Therapists) over at City Lit in London.
I’ve started a pinterest board of Speech and Language Pathologists / Therapists who stutter. I made it partly to motivate myself (as I’m training to be an SLT and I stutter) and to encourage anyone who has thought about it but been put off by their own difficulties with fluency.

It might seem paradoxical but, really, who is going to understand the impact of stuttering on your life better than someone who has lived with it and who has personal experience of the techniques and approaches you’ll be exploring in therapy?
Let me know if you know of other SLPs/SLTs who stutter (or if you are one!) and I will update the board.
