I have been invited to speak to middle school kids next month about stuttering during their Disability Awareness month activities. I will be giving three presentations, one each to the 6th grade, 7th grade and 8th grade. There will be 50-60 kids in each grade level. I’ve done this before several years ago to the same school and found that having activities to engage the kids was very successful. Do any of the professionals have ideas for hands-on activities that will illustrate stuttering for the age group? I’m looking for something quick, fun and that several students can participate in. I already plan to use Chinese finger traps to show getting stuck, and plan to have a contest for the loudest, longest, and weirdest stutter. I would be grateful for other ideas.
