Stuttering Foundation of America (SFA) has a new publication that I’ve been using frequently in therapy with school-age children. Sometimes I Just Stutter (Book 31) is a 39-page book written for children ages 7–12. It covers a range of topics, including why stuttering varies across situations and days, common emotions children experience because of stuttering, how to handle teasing, and who can help. Also, sample letters to various family members and teachers are included. The letters explain the stuttering to the adults, and offer suggestions for how to help, including not finishing words, making eye contact, and listening patiently. Children can use these letters as written, or modify them to fit the child’s own particular situation.
