Purchase Stuttering: Straight Talk for Teachers

Updated 2012. In this powerful 18-minute DVD, students who stutter talk to teachers about their experiences and experts in the field of speech pathology answer questions about what works and what doesn't in the classroom.

A perfect length for an after-school inservice or short enough for a teacher to watch alone. The DVD and accompanying 32-page book answer common questions:

  • how to respond to the child who stutters in the classroom,
  • what happens in speech therapy,
  • how to handle teasing,
  • how to deal with oral presentations.

The free 32-page book includes a resource section for teachers, SLPs, parents, and children materials. The section for SLPs provides information on how to lead an inservice or work individually with classroom teachers.
