#SaveYourPatience for Stuttering Awareness

Martin Sommer, neurologist and scientist from Goettingen, wrote to me:
I would like to inform you that we are launching a campaign #SaveYourPatience with English texts on youtube videos, therefore accessible to an English-speaking audience. 
You can find them here
The aim is to promote awareness for a specific need of people who stutter, using a novel publicity approach. You can help us a lot by sharing the youtube videos as much as you can. There are five videos that will be launched sequentially from May 1 to May 5, 2015. 
Best regards, and thanks for your enthusiasm and for keeping your blog always updated, 
Martin Sommer for the German Stuttering Association (Bundesvereinigung Stottern & Selbsthilfe) 

Join me to the IFA congress held in Portugal in July!

I will be at the IFA congress at the beginning of July in Lisbon in Portugal.

I will give two presentations, one on my biopsychosocial model and one on obstacles to measure treatment efficacy in early-childhood intervention.

I will also do interview and discussion rounds for Peter Reitzes' StutterTalk with attending scientists and clinicians. I plan to call them Hard Talk in the spirit of BBC's Hard Talk!

I hope to meet you in Lisbon!

And if you are from overseas and plan to add a European tour to your Congress attendance, visit me and Jelena in Luxembourg! We have a spare room...

To finish off, here's a picture of Lisboa.
