Write a brief summary with your partner of your experiences. Examples of the types of questions to answer in your summary include: What was the reaction of the person you were talking to? What were your own reactions? How did stuttering affect your ability to communicate? Did it affect your personality? Were some situations easier or harder than others? Did stuttering get easier or harder as you progressed through the assignment? Why? What did you learn regarding your role working with people who stutter? How did you feel watching your partner stutter? Be prepared to present your experience to the class (5 minutes). The discussion will be held 2/04/14. To experience what it is like to be person who stutters, Susie and I visited various places such as Haymen Center, RideAid, Burger King, Fresh Grocer, Sunoco gas station, and a convenient store.

We both made one phone call to one of our closest friends. It was easier because we can tell them later that it was for academics and also we were interested to see how our friends would react to a person with disfluencies. Overall, the people we encountered were generally nice. For the most part, people seem to dismiss the disfluency and were willing to engage in conversation or answer questions we presented them with. When we went to the convenient store, the owner who was not native English speaker was more willing to go out his way to help us compared to his son who dismissed us and was rude. We asked the owner how do we get back to LaSalle and the owner’s son responded with use your phone. This
