Help for stutterers

International Stuttering Awareness Day is Oct. 22. It's a great time to remind your readers that there are speech-language pathologists in the Alle-Kiski Valley who specialize in helping people who stutter.

The nonprofit Stuttering Foundation provides a free list of local specialists for your area. Visit us at StutteringHelp.org and click on “Referrals” to see this list.

Parents can also use our website to find the new video “7 Tips for Talking with the Child Who Stutters.” It features the leading voices on preschool stuttering who provide parents with answers to tough questions about stuttering and practical strategies they can use immediately.

Our materials are available at more than 8,500 libraries nationwide. Just click on “Check Your Library.”

We also provide the latest research information and self-help materials compiled by the leading authorities.
