Stuttering Education in the schools
Today I went into Mattlin Middle School in Plainview, NY to talk about stuttering education to sixty 5th grade students. Interestingly, my daughter wanted me to come in because she thought it was important that the students learned that despite growing up with a severe stuttering disorder, I battled back to become a speech/language pathologist specializing in stuttering disorders. It was a wonderful experience. It gave me the opportunity to educate the children on stuttering, tolerance and spend time with my daughter. It was an incredible experience and I plan to continue talking to schools.
