Sometimes stories are best told with pictures. Ben, a 9-year-old boy who started coming to our clinic in 2009, wanted to share his story so that others could find the inspiration and courage to continue their journey with their own stuttering. These pictures have been taken from Ben’s participation in our Confident Communicators group we ran this year where five boys and their parents participated in four group therapy sessions spread out over the year. The group focused on learning about stuttering and speech production, improving communication skills, opportunities to practice speech tools and strategies to help deal with bullying and teasing. Parent sessions focused on counselling, peer support and discussing ideas on how best to support their child. Many thanks to Ben and Christine for giving us permission to use these personal insights!
