“Your presentation was the most inspirational session I have ever attended in my 35 years of attending state and national presentations as an SLP and former school principal. Your story, so beautifully told, inspired me not only with the work I might do in the future with clients who stutter, but with all individuals who present communication differences.”
Mike Buchanan, Speech-Language Pathologist
Retired Coordinator and Principal, Gladstone Center for Children and Families
"I just want to say the feeling I got from watching The Way We Talk is indescribable. Usually stuttering documentaries make me feel sad and hopeless but this… gave me a sense of empowerment. I've never been so proud of my stutter in this moment ever."
Andrew, age 22
“I had the opportunity to attend the first screening of The Way We Talk and was profoundly moved and inspired. My husband has had a stutter his whole life and this film was the first he had ever seen that truly represented how he feels and that portrays those who stutter in such a positive light, emphasizing that having a stutter does not need to dictate how one’s life will unfold.”
Erin Cochran, Occupational Therapist
"Astonishing, brave, and deeply searching... The thoughts, hopes, and dreams that Mike shares through the film are applicable to a broad variety of individuals—both within and beyond the stuttering community. The Way We Talk is simply a beautiful film, one that should be screened as far and wide as possible."
Morgen Ruff, Programmer, Northwest Film Center
