It is common for everyone to experience interruptions in their speech. During early childhood, some children will have interruptions that sound like stuttering, which will either resolve or lead to continued stuttering in the school-age and adolescent years. Come dive in with us to discover the meaning of stuttering, debunk common myths, and challenge societal expectations for children and adolescents who stutter. We will also discuss caregiver strategies and explore effective goals for speech therapy.

This online program is free and open to Mass General staff, patients, and the general public. No registration needed.
