Book available to help those who stutter

Over three million Americans stutter. Stuttering affects their lives in many ways. They deal daily with embarrassment and frustration. Help is available at most public libraries in the form of a book Advice to Those Who Stutter.

Advice to Those Who Stutter, a 158 page book, gives practical advice written by 24 men and women speech pathologists who themselves stutter, advising what helped them and what they believe will help others control their difficulty.

Stuttering Foundation books are directed to parents of children who stutter, adults who stutter, speech pathologists, pediatricians, family physicians, nurses, health care professionals, hospitals, schools, clinics, day-care centers, and all those concerned with the problem of stuttering. Since the original publication, Foundation books and brochures have reached millions of individuals worldwide. The 65-year-old nonprofit foundation also offers many brochures and DVDs on stuttering.

Books and DVDs produced by the 66-year-old nonprofit Stuttering Foundation are available free to any public library. A library that will shelve them can contact the Foundation at 1-800-992-9392, e-mail, or visit or
