  1. What an interesting way to look at stuttering. I found it fascinating how Joe Biden’s mom turned stuttering and made it into something good – being too smart. As a future speech language pathologist, it is good to know about different techniques/approaches that have worked with different individuals. It is too bad that everything has a stereotype these days. The picture at the top of the article goes to show that no matter what a person does/looks like, there is a stereotype to go along with it. Stuttering, along with many other things, would be looked at in a very different light if we could change the stereotype that goes along with it. If we connected stuttering with words such as capable, talented, skilled, competent, or gifted, I believe it would change how people view people who stutter, and also how people who stutter view themselves.

    • Annie,

      Thank you so much for your words “capable, talented, skilled, competent, or gifted.” I felt so free when hearing this.
