Speech and Language Pathologists

“Your talk is becoming such an important time for the class… First, …to meet not only a person who stutters, but someone who offers a beacon of hope to others… Second, …it shows them that they can approach challenges with energy and positivity.  Finally, I believe your visit reminds our SLP students of the successes they can achieve after leaving Kent State. Indeed, my students have commented on how influential your talk was in their approach to their own lives and their clients who stutter.”

 Hayley S. Arnold, Ph.D., CCC-SLP, Assistant Professor, Speech Pathology & Audiology, Kent State University


“Your presentation was uplifting and inspiring. . . . .  I also received some feedback from the speech therapists during the intermission and in the days after the presentation:

  • ‘I knew I was going to cry at some point during the presentation, and I did.’
  • ‘He makes me want to be a better person.’
  • ‘I will be asking each of my students to tell me one good thing about their week.’

Katie Johnstone, M.S. CCC-SLP, Columbus City Schools, Speech and Language Department

“I have had the opportunity of having Nobby speak to my graduate fluency class the past four years and it has been an incredible experience for everyone involved in the class. Nobby has made a lasting impression on all of my students and I can not say enough about him as a lecturer.”

“Nobby Lewandowski presented “Building Self Confidence – Elevating Self Esteem” at our 14th Leadership in Language and Literacy Conference in October 2008 which helped map ideas for setting goals and the keys to building self confidence… Participants left his session empowered to assist educators and families collaborate more effectively, ensuring language and literacy success for all children. Nobby has special gifts of experience, wisdom and humor to share with audiences, large and small, professional or non-professional. We are truly fortunate to have Nobby as a friend of OSSPEAC!”
