In the role of the school speech pathologist, I used this powerful film as part of an in class (4th & 5th grade) interactive presentation which incorporated student collaboration to increase stuttering knowledge and awareness as well as individual differences and bullying. The response was electric and quite revealing. I highly recommend it. ( It was pre and post approved by the dysfluent students in the classes).
