Stuttering: Straight Talk for Teens

The teen years are full of challenges. For teens who stutter, it can also be a lonely time. They need to know that they are not alone - and that real help is available.

In this 30 minute video, teens share their experiences of stuttering and talk about what works for them. Narrated by high school student David Wilkins, who stutters himself, Stuttering: Straight Talk for Teens provides forthright information and advice on managing stuttering in academic and social settings. Noted clinicians demonstrate helpful techniques and discuss:

- what stuttering is
- concerns and feelings associated with stuttering
- stuttering in the school setting
- ways to help yourself and where to find help.

This video is an excellent resource for teens and adults, their families, teachers, physicians, and speech-language pathologists.
