Saturday Maintenance Day & AGM @ WOODSTOCK
Saturday 10th February 2018

All welcome to some much needed speech practise this coming Saturday the 10th February 2018 from 9am at the Woodstock Community Centre, 22 Church St, Burwood.

The day starts at 9 am and goes till 4 pm, with a break for lunch between 12.30 and 1.30 pm, morning and afternoon tea supplied.

This Saturday we have our AGM at 11.30am, to elect our new Committee for 2018 and to elect those who want to be on the NSW/ACT Conference 2019 planning Committee and with many other topics to be discussed, so all are welcome.

So come along to Woodstock for the chance to give your fluency skills a workout.

There will be the opportunity to discuss any difficulties you have been having, plan strategies to address them, and practise techniques that will give you the edge.

Challenge yourself with new activities, bring along some interesting reading material or ideas for discussions.

Meet with other people who stutter, learn how they have handled difficult times, pass on tips to newer members, and have some fun in the process.

The cost is $6 for members and $8 for non-members. If you really can’t give the whole day over to speech practise, you are welcome to come for a half day or even just a couple of hours.

Please let me know if you expect to be coming along at: (petergreville@gmail.com)

All the best Peter

Australian Speak Easy Association shared Stories Out Loud's video.Friday, January 19th, 2018 at 6:00pm
Many of you saw the short movie about my life as a person who stutters last year on Stories Out Loud. And you supported me and liked the story. Well at the same time they did a back story on Violet my wife's journey supporting me as a person who stutters. So just to let you know behind every story there is a back story. Always good to see other peoples perspectives on stuttering. Peter Dhu

Stories Out Loud
SHORT STORIES: our new mini-series. There are always two sides to a story. Peter (featured in season one), stuttered so much he stayed silent for many years of his life. Violet, his life-long partner, shares her raw and heartfelt experience. Violet explains how she had to dig deep to find herself when her husband changed almost overnight. This is Violet's story. Simple Stories. Infinite Impact.
