ASHA Voices

Lessons Learned From Stuttering Struggles and Beatboxing Sounds

October 24, 2019

On this episode of ASHA Voices, we talk with Taro Alexander about the loneliness that can come with growing up with a stutter. Now, his nonprofit, the Stuttering Association for the Young, or SAY, provides a community to a new generation of young people who stutter.

Alexander will receive the 2019 Annie Glenn Award for his work with SAY at the next month's ASHA Convention in Orlando. Also presenting at convention is a researcher we'll hear from later in the episode. Joined by a former colleague, they'll tell us what MRIs of beatboxers could teach us about speech.

This episode brings you guests you can see in person when you attend the ASHA Convention, held November 21 to 23. Registration is open.
