• Today my middle school student came for a follow-up visit to my office after speaking at his school earlier this week about stuttering.  He was SO empowered, self-confident, and free. Free of hiding from his stutter, free from being misunderstood, free of fear and panic, because he shared his personal story. This week was a major victory for him and I couldn’t be prouder.

This morning, my 13 year old student actually texted these words to me from his mother’s phone. As we prepare for the presentation he asked to give to his school next week, his anxiety and fear grows to a place of panic. I hope and pray that as he opens up and educates his fellow students, he will be empowered. Why isn’t the world a kinder place for our kids? 😢 @stutteringfdn @aisstutter @westutter @ashaweb
