Self-Therapy for the Stutterer
submitted by the Stuttering Foundation of America Self-Therapy for the Stutterer is the classic self-help guide by the founder of The Stuttering Foundation, Malcolm Fraser. It is written to and for the many adults and teens who stutter. The 192-page book is available at most public libraries, including Hudson. If you stutter, you do not need to surrender helplessly to your speech difficulty because you can change the way you talk. You can learn to communicate with ease rather than with effort. There is no quick and easy way to tackle the problem, but with the right approach, self-therapy can be effective. This book outlines a self-therapy program which describes what the person who stutters can do to work towards better communication. It is often used as a supplement to speech therapy. A timely feature on page 164 is information about King
George VI and how inspirational his speeches were during World War II as depicted in the new movie, The King’s Speech. Writes Charles Van Riper, Ph.D., about this
book: “There are always some who stutter who are unable to get professional help and others who do not seem to be able to profit from it. There are some who prefer to be their own therapist. In this book, Malcolm Fraser has provided guidance for those who must help themselves. Knowing well from his own experience as a stutterer the difficulties of self-therapy, he outlines a series of objectives and challenges that should serve as a map for the person who is lost in the dismal swamp of stuttering and wants to find a way out.” The book is available free to all public libraries.
If your library doesn’t have it, ask them to contact the Stuttering Foundation toll-free at 800-992- 9392 for a copy.
by Belinda Sinclair There is nothing I love better then seeing my kids taking our Border Collies Bonnie and Duncan through their repertoire of tricks. Bonnie and Duncan love all the attention and our daughters love being able to teach their dogs to literally jump through hoops on command. Teaching your dog tricks is a sneaky way of reinforcing basic obedience commands in play mode. While my daughters are teaching our dogs to do a trick, they are teaching Bonnie and Duncan to respect and trust them. This is an important skill that can only be “earned” in your relationship with your dog. I believe this is the easiest way to get your kids and dog to have a relationship based on love, praise, affection and yes, a yummy treat. It is very advantageous to have already obedience trained your dog when you begin to introduce tricks, since most tricks work off of basic obedience commands. Teaching your dog obedience and then following up with tricks will strengthen your relationship with your dog. There are four basic commands that you will need to do many simple tricks. They are sit, stand, down and stay. You will need a hungry dog and a bag of very small treats in order to teach your dog tricks. I like to work with at least three different treats in my treat training bag at a time. I find that the dogs I work with are more interested when they don’t know which treat they are getting next. Your treats should also be very small and easy to eat in a bite or two. For a simple trick that any dog can do at any age is “Spin” and “Twirl.” Basically it is the same trick which can be done in two different directions. Spin is having your dog walk in a small circle clockwise and twirl is having your dog walk in a small circle going counter- clockwise. To start, let your dog see you place a very small treat in your hand. Most owners have their dogs sit facing them in order to get a treat, so many dogs will sit automatically with the anticipation of getting the treat. To do this trick you will need to get your dog out of the sit position by luring your dog forward with the treat and once your dog is standing, start luring your dog around in a circle going counter-clockwise with the treat in front of his or her nose. Do not say the word twirl at this point as your dog does not know what it means. Once your dog has completed the circle, give them the treat and repeat again. When your dog figures out what you want in order for them to get the treat, they will start doing a counter-
clockwise circle faster. This is when you start saying the word twirl as your dog is walking in the circle. Once your dog is circling with ease, you can start standing more upright and luring less, but always give a treat for doing the circle. This type of training is called operant conditioning and you are capturing the behavior that you want by naming it. For your dog to get proficient at doing this trick,
only practice going in one direction for a couple of days until they know it well before moving your dog in the opposite direction which would be spin. Over a short time you should be able to get your dog to circle for you in either direction by saying it and just spinning your hand to the right or left. Your dog will love doing this trick, Bonnie and Duncan sure do! Next you can work on having your dog take a
bow. No polite dog should be without one! We have all seen our dogs take a bow when they are in play mode. This is when their reared is up in the air and they are on their elbows in the front. It is very cute and a crowd pleaser. Start with your dog in a standing position. Let
your dog see you put a treat in your right hand and hold it in front of his or her nose, but not be able to get it. Your dog will need help getting into this position so you will need to take your left hand and place it in the inner right thigh of your dog just underneath his belly. This is to hold up the backend while we have your dog follow the treat so that we can get the front end in a down position. With your right hand take the treat and lure your dog’s nose down as you bring it in between his feet. If your dog is motivated by food, they will bend into the bow position nicely with a few tries. Remember to say “Bow” while you are getting your dog into the bow position once they are doing it with ease to get the treat which you release once your dog is in the bow position. This trick will require many encores for friends and family!

Hudson Police Log Know Your Limits
by Bill Dawson, UNH Cooperative Extension Natural Resources Steward After you retire and are free to move about the
world without the restrictions of regular 9-to-5 work schedules, you tend to fill your calendar with volunteer activities. Some are coerced and some arise because you have chosen to do this or that particular activity. Being a grandpa fits both categories, so I try not to be grumpy about minding the third generation. I must say, though—my patience has been sorely tried a few times.
Since I have taken some training as earth team/ tree steward docent, I get involved in some dirty jobs in other people’s backyards. After church, a group of us “older folks” gather over coffee and doughnuts and discuss the world problems in our usual erudite fashion. During a pause in the conversation, one of the “really older ones” said that he wished the he had the strength to prepare a place for some spring bulbs. Being a robust 73- year-old male still somewhat invincible, I blurted out, “Let me help!” That’s when the trouble began. My friend explained that the spot where he wanted to put the bulbs was currently occupied by a plot of blue flag irises that had not been attended to for about eight years. I stopped by his house during the next week to check the location. I tested the surface of the bed with a shovel and found it resistant to penetration. I told him that I would be back with some additional tools in a week or so. He said that he would order the bulbs in the meantime. I have been known to do battle with rocks in the past, so I have some tools not possessed by the average gardener. I gathered my mattock, a sledgehammer, a spade, and a heavy-duty hoe,
and set off to do battle. What a battle it was! First, I drove the spade into the bed about six
inches. I continued across the bed in similar fashion. Feeling good about how things were progressing, I moved over about 18 inches and repeated the procedure. It was now time to pause for a drink—of water, of course. Now, it was mattock time. I drove the flat blade into the fissure created by the spade and began prying chunks of the lily mat out and tossing them into the garden cart. That was easy enough, but the plot was about 6 feet by 20 feet. By the time I had removed the entire mat, a couple of hours had elapsed and my back was complaining. I was overdue for another drink and some painkillers. The soil under the bed was hard-packed and
very dry. Since it was getting close to my labor limit for one day, I quit and retreated to my recliner for some much-needed relaxation. After a spell of respite, I returned with my spade and hoe. I brought along a bag of peat moss, spread half the bag on the surface, and spaded it into the soil. That was no easy task, I’ll tell you! The rest of the bag was dumped on the surface and chopped in with the hoe. Last came a thorough watering of the bed. Time for another break while the water percolated into the soil. We developed a plot plan for the assortment of tulips, daffodils, and large bearded irises. The last step was to place the bulbs according to the plan, with a bit of fertilizer for each. Hopefully, the squirrels won’t find them before the freeze. I can’t wait to see what comes up in the spring! Would I do it again? Probably not for someone
else. But on my own plots, I am constantly digging until the snow comes between me and my beds.
