Children Who Stutter Speak Out to Build Awareness

"This past March, seven children who stutter spoke to a crowd that included their parents and 50 graduate students in an effort to deepen others’ understanding of how stuttering affects their lives."


"It was important for these children to learn that success is not measured by whether one stutters or not, but instead to shift their focus on becoming excellent communicators. We set these children up to feel comfortable sharing with their clinicians any negative thoughts and feelings regarding their stuttering. The children worked really hard to turn negative thoughts and feelings into positive ones and further focus on their communication abilities."
