Dhruv Gupta joins Joel Korte, Caryn Herring and Roisin McManus of the StutterTalk B Team at the 2014 annual conference of the National Stuttering Association (NSA) in Washington, DC. DHRUV GUPTA is the newly appointed Executive Director of The Indian Stammering Association (TISA).

Dhruv is very active in the stuttering community. Today on StutterTalk Mr. Gupta is asked to discuss his participation in self help organizations for people who stutter including TISA, SAY: The Stuttering Association for the Young, the American Institute for Stuttering and Toastmasters. Dhruv discusses how relapse in stuttering treatment is normal and expected which is why self help groups for people who stutter are so important. Caryn noted that, as in a recent episode, all four speakers on today’s episode received speech therapy at the American Institute for Stuttering in Manhattan.

“How I mange my stuttering is, I try to stutter. I try to voluntarily stutter.” -Dhruv Gupta
