1 in 20

Around 1 in 20 children will develop some sort of stuttering during childhood years. Children love to talk our ears off, most of the time asking “why” to everything and anything we say. It can be difficult as a parent to notice a difference in your child’s speech, maybe a slight stutter when they are excited? Or when they are trying to tell you about what they learned in school? Well, stuttering is more prevalent than you think.


Why should you try another new therapy?

If you stutter, chances are that you have tried many ways to either become more fluent or learn to accept it. There is a plethora of therapy options and many different opinions on how to treat stuttering. If you are new to the “therapy universe”, the first task is usually figuring out what the right approach is for you. This includes finding a therapist you can trust and more importantly someone you can work with.


What people who stutter wish you knew

No two people who stutter are alike. When talking to someone who stutters, use compassion and common sense – would you like to always get random advice from others that makes you feel inferior? In life, you are bound to meet one, if not many, people who stutter. If you think “I actually have never encountered someone who stutters”, chances are that you have, and did not realize it (given that 1% of the entire population stutters). If you were aware of the person’s stuttering, how did you react? Did you feel uncomfortable or think you might have done something wrong?
