Fluency specialist Kristin Chmela, M.A., CCC-SLP, talks to parents of children and teenagers who stutter, drawing upon her own experiences not only as a person who stutters but also as a parent, therapist, and teacher.
Chmela urges parents to see each child as a gift; she also asks parents to consider several important guidelines as they rear a child who stutters.
This 45-minute DVD was filmed live at the annual convention of Friends; The Association of Young People Who Stutter.
Special thanks to Friends and its director Lee Caggiano, M.A., CCC-SLP.
"This is one of the most powerful closing speeches I have ever seen. I felt like I was part of the audience and highly recommend others getting this DVD if not for themselves then for group settings. I know I'll be using it!" Voon Keong Pang, Stuttering Treatment and Research Trust-New Zealand
