A tidbit of information to help people who stutter as well as those who communicate with them.
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/
Do not let stuttering ruin your life
"True, your stutter is a part of you but it should not run your life.If you allow it to take control, you can never find the real person behind the defensive facade you continually hide behind." Jon Symons
"By tackling situations of greater difficulty, others that were once hard become easier."
"Stuttering is not something that happens to me. It is something that I do." Dr. Johnson
"There are no quick or magical answers to your stuttering." - Barbara
"Saturate yourself with speech. There is a direct correlation between speaking time and fluency." G. F. Johnson
(Here is a good response to someone who asks if you are working on improving your speech.)
"I stutter, and I am ok with it. I hope you are too. Every time I talk, I am improving my communication. Thanks for showing your concern."
“I believe that one's normal reactions to stuttering can often lead to continued struggle and avoidances, and these responses can maintain or exacerbate stuttering.” Dr. Ramig
