Description: School-Aged children who stutter often rate themselves as poor communicators and are more likely to experience negative social interactions because of their stuttering. Additionally, the general public harbors negative views of people who stutter and often underestimates what they can accomplish. Luckily the impact of stigma and negative stereotyping can be diminished with the use of voluntary stuttering. This presentation will explore ways in which voluntary stuttering can be used to empower School-Aged children who stutter in therapy.
