Hanan Hurwitz

Hanan Hurwitz joins Chaya Goldstein to discuss Israel’s strong stuttering support network and the negative use of the term stuttering in politics to wrongly suggest that a candidate is weak and ineffectual. Mr. Hurwitz explained the importance of speaking to the media, teachers, speech-language pathologists, and the general public about Israel to educate and clarify misperceptions.

This episode was recorded in Hveragerdi, Iecland at the Embrace Your Stutter World Congress.
