I am a speech-language pathology graduate student and currently taking a stuttering course. This question is for parents of CWS, professionals, or a PWS. I grew up with a boy who stuttered and he was constantly bullied for it. He started stuttering as early as I can remember. In middle school his parents got a divorce. His stuttering was at its worst at this time in his life. He never did speech therapy and his parents usually avoided talking to him about his stuttering. We have discussed in class the importance of talking to kids about their stuttering. Does anyone have any recommendations for successful ways parents/professionals can talk to their children about stuttering in an effective and positive manner? Also, what are the best ways to educate other kids who don’t stutter about stuttering so that there is a greater awareness of it?
