My 13- year -old son receives services for stuttering. His pathologist has researched new methods to help him deal with stressful situations that cause the stuttering to be more profound. These methods make him feel somewhat in control of his disability and his treatment. He has individual sessions which ensure that the focus is entirely on him and his needs. I am frequently given updates and am even given handouts that help me reinforce what he receives in the sessions. My son is not introverted like most children who stutter. He is very active in school and scouts. He is an honors student. All of this is due to the coping and corrective techniques he learns from his speech sessions.
