I am a first year graduate student studying speech-language pathology. I am currently enrolled in a stuttering course, and have been learning so much. One of the big things we talked about in class is advocating for people who stutter. I have an interest in working in the schools, and I was wondering what advice professionals or people who stutter have on advocating for children who stutter in the classroom. What advice do you have for a school speech-language pathologist who is working with a student who stutters, as well as with that student’s teachers and peers? In what ways can you advocate for a student who stutters, or encourage a student who stutters to advocate for themselves in the school setting? Do you have any advice on how you can you help a student to be successful socially, emotionally, and academically? Thank you for your time!
