According to the Stuttering Foundation of America and the National Stuttering Association, May 11-17 is National Stuttering Awareness Week. Stuttering can make it difficult to communicate with other people, and often affects a person’s quality of life. Roughly three million Americans stutter. Researchers around the world are exploring ways to improve the early identification and treatment of stuttering and to identify its causes.
