Mobile coverage problems – apparently

November 24, 2006

During mobile phone conversations with people which don’t know I stutter, sometimes these people interpret blockages or speech lags with shortage of mobile coverage.

Despite this can be quite unpleasant, I’ve found it offers several opportunities:

  • It can be used as a way of increasing awareness on your speech during the rest of conversation. Therefore, it is a signal to stop…relax….and take control.
  • You can tell the other person you stutter, supporting acceptance of stuttering as something natural and a part of you.
  • Other person feedback can be used as feedback for you performance. However, I plan not to confuse feedback with trying to hide I stutter as it can increase tension.

Hope you find these useful!
