Letter: Overcoming struggles with stuttering

To the Editor:

For many people, ringing in the new year brings hope and joyful anticipation. But for those who struggle with stuttering, the old fears of speaking and being teased remain the same – year after year.

Many of your readers don’t know that help for stuttering is available from so many places. Trusted information on stuttering is available at your local public library. Public schools have speech counselors, and children are entitled to free evaluation and help by law. Seek out a speech-language pathologist in your area, trained in helping those who stutter. Universities often offer speech clinics.

Finally, the internet can be wonderful resource on stuttering – with free books, videos and reference materials. Visit our website as a starting point, www.StutteringHelp.org. Make 2017 the year you find the help you and your family need.

Jane Fraser

President of The Stuttering Foundation
