Some Stutter, Luh!

by The Communication Collaborative

Join host, Greg O'Grady, and his guests for a weekly dose of speech, language and what it's like to live with a communication impairment. Some Stutter, Luh! is Newfoundland and Labrador's first podcast about living with communication differences. We speak directly to people living with speech and language challenges, and others such as speech language pathologists, researchers, educators and family members. We use inclusive language and themes to help rebuild confidence and hope by dismantling myths, stigma, stereotypes and barriers.

Interview with Jon Garcin


In today’s episode we interview Jon Garcin!

Jon is a person who stutters, a speech-language pathologist, and member of the NLSA. Jon has been a big supporter of this podcast and other NLSA projects in Newfoundland for many years! Jon speaks not only about his experiences as a person who stutters, but also as an SLP treating those who happen to stutter. Jon discusses his experiences of anxiety and acceptance as a PWS and also shares how being a person who stutters has impacted and influenced him in his education, career and relationships. Jon also shares his experiences as an SLP working virtually throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, how he supports both students and parents during treatment, and his experience with the Fluency Plus program. As well, all three have some thought-provoking conversations about what it means and how it feels to be “normal” or to live without anxiety associated with communication.
