These amazing parents have worked with their children and the Therapists at Granite Bay Speech to help their children effectively communicate in their community. It can be difficult when the world around us does not understand what it is like to stutter.
Aaron explains some important techniques that he has learned and implemented which help his son and his students who stutter.
- Lead by example and stretch your word first
- Repeat what the person says to let him know that you are listening
- Be patient
- Use non-verbal gestures demonstrating a stretch to remind him of his techniques
Watch the video to see how another parent explains her experience in the community with her son who stutters.
Most importantly, remember to respond to WHAT the person is saying, rather than HOW they are saying it.
