Stuttering affects many; take time to listen

Written by  Staff Writer

To the editor,
National Stuttering Awareness Week begins May 7. Did you know more than 3 million Americans stutter? That’s more than the populations of Wyoming, Vermont, Alaska, North Dakota and Washington, DC. combined.

One percent of your readers stutter, and up to 5 percent of children stutter for a time during their early developmental years.

In the spirit of spreading awareness, the most important thing you and your readers can do for someone who stutters — or for anyone you are speaking with — is listen. Listen to what they have to say rather than how they say it.

For more information, visit our website: StutteringHelp.org.
