STATE — Stuttering is a frustrating and embarrassing problem for millions of people. Help is available at most public libraries in the form of DVDs and books. If you are interested in checking one out and your library doesn’t have it, ask them to contact the Stuttering Foundation for a complimentary copy.
Stuttering and Your Child: Help for Parents, Straight Talk for Teens, Stuttering: For Kids By Kids, Self Therapy for the Stutterer, and If You Stutter: Advice for Adults are some of the titles available, with several also available in Spanish.
More than three million Americans stutter, yet stuttering remains misunderstood by most people,” said Jane Fraser, president of the Stuttering Foundation. “Myths such as believing people who stutter are less intelligent or suffer from psychological problems still persist despite research refuting these erroneous beliefs.”
Books and DVDs produced by the non-profit Stuttering Foundation are available free of charge to any public library. Visit your library for information about stuttering for children, parents, teens, adults, teachers, and employers; call 1-800-992-9392, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org, or visit www.stutteringhelp.org and www.tartamudez.org.
