[FONT=&quot]Hi,

Mods: This is not a spam. TISA is a non-profit organization for stutterers/stammerers. I am posting this on their behalf, for the benfit of stutterers on this site.

We are a group of Indian PWS( People Who Stutter). Through our own experience and other people's, we have learnt that self-help groups can play a very important role in overcoming stuttering.

Therapy can only make us fluent in a controlled environment, but to implement it in real life we have to practice it with real people and that's where self-help groups come into play.

TISA co-ordinates city-wise self-help groups and also gives a platform to discuss and share your problems.

Please visit www.stammer.in and register yourself. In addition to SHG (self-help group) activities, you'll also find many other resources there.

Regards

Nitin [/FONT]

A shameless bump. For a good cause.

Guys, if you yourself stammer, or know anybody who does, direct them to this conference.

Cheers

Nitin
