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/

Stuttering advice

Saying “take a deep breath before talking,” or “think about what you want to say first” is the advice given to people who stutter. I see it all over the internet from well-meaning people who really don't have a clue about stuttering. This advice only makes the person more self-conscious, making the stuttering worse. People who stutter, specialists, and The Stuttering Foundation will tell you what really helps are listening patiently and modeling slow and clear speech yourself.
