MEMPHIS, Tenn. (October 15, 2013) — “This is one of the most helpful pieces that I have been sent in my 27 years of private practice,” wrote a doctor from Washington state.

Pediatricians from across the country are praising the book and new video, 7 Tips for Talking with the Child Who Stutters, from the Stuttering Foundation. “I just received the pediatrician’s guide for stuttering and had a chance to review it. What wonderful and helpful information you and your group provided,” he added.

Another pediatrician from Maryland wrote: “I’m so pleased to be able to offer better support and guidance to concerned parents. I’m impressed with the scope of your outreach program and applaud the Foundation for doing such excellent work!”

The Stuttering Foundation sent a copy of the new video and accompanying book, The Child Who Stutters: To the Pediatrician, to 53,727 pediatricians this week.

“Through our website, www.StutteringHelp.org, we have made the leading voices on preschool stuttering available for free to parents to answer their tough questions about stuttering, offer practical strategies, and build confidence,” said Jane Fraser, president of the Stuttering Foundation. “It is our hope that parents who seek advice about stuttering from their trusted pediatrician will find the help they need."
