    Hi Robyn,

    I enjoyed your presentation. I was particularly interested in the voice training. I did the intensive course of 40 one on one sessions and found it a great benefit but I am afraid I have let it slip. Do you use the EMST and how do you find it? I was particularly interested in the fact that you were a teacher. I do calligraphy as a hobby and also art (pastel). I had never experienced micrographia until it suddenly caught up with me without warning. I have discovered that I am able to manage it by drawing heavy black lines on the paper to use as guidelines. I am 82 and was diagnosed in 2011.
