Aligarh shg meeting report
Date: 26/10/14

I want to thank president of TISA Dr. sachin sirvastava for starting shg meeting in Aligarh on every Sunday. And also thank our co-ordinator sikandar alam for taking this responsibility for conducting meeting .
Our meeting took place in naqvi park in which seven members participated. First of all meditation technique was practiced. Slowly strength of our members increased. Mean while, a non stammer maulana named tahir came in the meeting. Firstly, we educated to him about TISA and asked his view about stammering. Maulana said a very important thing that, there had came about 124000 nabi(A.S)(messenger of God) on the earth to spared the message of God. In which one nabi(A.S) was also a stamerer named as musa alaihe salam(moses). And also maulana said that you are doing very good job. So I was feeling proud to be a stammer after talking with him.


firstly we gave our self introduction with some  techniques.  After then, we did an activity for worm up our vibrator using volunteering stammering. Then, we discussed on acceptance that is the key for understanding of stammering.  We summarize some techniques like volunteering stuttering, bouncing prolongation etc. we also discussed about the workshop which will be conducted from 27 to 29 december in AMU Aligarh.

Self help in Spain!

Greetings friends, my name is Carlos and I'm a stutterer who live in Spain, I have a blog where I offer free information about all methods for stuttering, and also a method that I invented, I would like them to put a link to my blog on your site......... .....
Hello to All....Hope u all are doing well :)

Today i have given a Presentation....and it was really BAD...!!!!

But one good thing is that i came to about various factors that influence my stammering.......!!!
A day before presentation i practised it and also i had given in front of my that time i got little stammering but was good as per me and as per my friend as well...!!!

So, I compared both the situations..........

While practising in front of my friend....... i found that my Heartbeat was NORMAL and i was CALM becoz of that i stammered less...!!!


When i actually presented in front of the class.... i found that my Hearbeat INCREASED suddenly(may be becoz of the faculty and the students present) and simultaneously after starting presentation LEVEL OF ANXIETY also INCREASED...and which lead to a lot of stammering..!!!


How to Increase the Level of Anxiety while practising??????.....means when we r comfortable IS THERE ANY WAYS TO INCREASE THE ANXIETY LEVEL ????
....becoz ultimately we have deal with it and should know how to tame it.........becoz as i think Anxiety is the Biggest culprit for stammering in all of us...!!!

NC outcomes in my life . . .

3-5 अक्टूबर 2014 को खण्डाला (पुणे) में सम्पन्न टीसा की नेशनल कान्फ्रेन्स में शामिल होने का शुभ अवसर मुझे भी प्राप्त हुआ। यह एन.सी. मेरे लिए बहुत ही यादगार और रोचक अनुभवों से भरी रही। हकलाहट के साथ ही संचार और जीवन के कई अनछुए पहलुओं को नजदीक से देखने, जानने, समझने और महसूस करने का अद्भुत मौका मिला। 100 से अधिक हकलाने वाले व्यक्तियों को एकसाथ देखना वाकई किसी भी हकलाने वाले के लिए आश्चर्य और सुखद अनुभूतियों का गवाह पल हो सकता है। मैंने हाल के कुछ दिनों में कई पोस्ट के माध्यम से एन.सी. के अपने अनुभवों को आप सबसे साझा किया है। अब मैं कुछ ऐसा शेयर करना चाहता हूं जो मेरे जीवन को एक नई सीख दे गया।

Be the Change...

(Image Credit:

All of us want the world to be more aware of  stammering. We have number of suggestions to offer on how a non-PWS should treat a PWS. We want people to be more sensitive, more accepting toward stammering. But did we look within ourself and reflect on our own attitude toward stammering? Are we truly comfortable and accepting of our speech? Do we allow stammering to hold us back on different occasions? Do we feel guilty and apologetic of our blocks and repetitions?

How can we expect the world to be more accepting when we are hesitant to make eye contact when we talk? Be the change you want to see in the world. Accept yourself before you can expect others to accept you.

हकलाहट के साथ विकसित अनचाही आदतों पर नियंत्रण करें

By - विजयकुमार, देहरादून

हकलाहट के साथ-साथ हमारे शरीर पर कुछ दूसरे प्रभाव भी दिखाई देने लगते हैं। हाव-भाव आसामान्य होना, सिर, आंख, नाक, हाथ-पैर आदि अंगों की प्रतिक्रिया अलग होना। ये सभी संकेत हमारे संचार पर बुरा प्रभाव डालते हैं। जब हम हकलाहट पर वर्क करना शुरू करते हैं तो सेकेण्डरी बिहेवियर पर ध्यान देना और उन पर नियंत्रण रखना भी सीखना चाहिए।

क्या हैं हकलाहट के सेकेण्डरी बिहेवियर?

- बोलते समय जब हम रूक जाते हैं तो आंखें बार-बार बन्द होती हैं। आंखें आसामान्य रूप से उपर-नीचे गति करती हैं। भौहों की प्रतिक्रिया भी आसामान्य हो जाती हैं।

have given blasted speech at my office on 22nd Oct regarding ISAD

I did it , I did it and I did it
kyuki meri speech un sabhi mere bhaiyo aur behno ke liye hai jo hakaate hai. 

I have concluded 4 parts in my speech.
1. How do we feel while stammering
2. what are those difficult situation we have
3. People(non pws) misinterpretation during interview
phone-calls and simple talk
4. My Suggestion for those who talk with PWS

I have started my speech with showing voluntary stuttering on my name and told that generally we stammer have problem on our name but that's not because of fear that's what we are and I have shared one funny story that also contained stammer in too* 
and guys !!! really my speech was fight for stammerer so yes I told everything is like we are not knowledge less, we are not less confident, we are not sensitive but the only thing is sometime we repeat words, repeat first sound and get some block big and small that's it.
