For those who might enjoy seeing these, I am posting the quotes I have collected over the years on this page http://quotescollectedovertheyears.blogspot.com/

Tell the Teacher you stutter

Those who don't try to hide their stuttering and get help lead much happier lives. Sure, you can replace words or say a sentence another way in order to get around words that are hard to say, but that doesn't make it any easier in the long run. Stuttering is no different from being color blind; it is just easier for others to notice. Stating to a teacher when you first meet them, "I stutter" is much better than trying to get through a class without ever participating. All teachers should watch the video Straight Talk for Teachers, put out by the Stuttering Foundation of America. It comes with a handbook, too. Teachers should be directed to www.stutteringhelp.org for information to help the student who stutters as well as classmates.
