Letter to the Editor - Resources available to help with stuttering

Dear editor,

May 12-18 is National Stuttering Awareness Week. One in every 100 people stutter. That’s 80 million people worldwide! Yet stuttering is often misunderstood and even laughed at.

To address the many myths surrounding this complex disorder, the Stuttering Foundation has compiled a list of “75 Must-Use Resources for the Stuttering Community”—available free on our website: StutteringHelp.org.

The Foundation’s most popular content represents a mix of time-tested favorites and newer innovations:

Drawings and Letters from Kids webpage — featuring submissions from children around the world and published in our magazine.

Answers for Employers brochure — answering frequent questions from employers received by the Foundation each year.

Self-Therapy for the Stutterer e-book — written by Founder Malcolm Fraser in 1978.

List of Famous People Who Stutter webpage — continuously updated with many celebrities, sports heroes, writers and world leaders.

Podcast webpage — now in its sixth season with more than 100,000 listeners.

Advice to Those Who Stutter audio book — drafted in 1972 and updated by 28 therapists who stutter themselves.

I Stutter ID Card webpage — helping people identify themselves in a nonverbal way.

All resources are available at StutteringHelp.org.

Jane Fraser, President

The Stuttering Foundation
