Not only am I a person who has lived with a stutter, but I am also a trained medical social worker practicing at an AIDS/HIV clinic in California. I have thought a lot about how people move through change and the steps I have personally taken as I have made positive changes in my life. Professionals, researchers, and speech-language pathologists have also devoted much time and thought to this important topic. I will share my thoughts about how people change, my personal experience with change, and how speech-language pathologists can provide assistance during the change process. It is only by working together toward self-improvement and awareness that we are able to take the next step—creating change in our local communities and throughout the world.
