Uri Schneider wisely frames this lifecycle event as an opportunity for parents to form an alliance with their child; to make achievable goals and outcomes that align with the wishes of the child. Whether the Mitzvah is virtual or in-person, this podcast will offer helpful advice and strategies. Listen and you will quickly learn that this podcast pertains to all parent/child relationships as it pertains to stuttering.
