Members will discuss causes of and common misconceptions related to stuttering, current therapy options for children and adults and helpful suggestions for concerned parents. The presentation will take place from 11:00-12:30.

We especially encourage parents who are concerned about their children’s stuttering to attend. OAPWS members will also be available after the presentation to discuss any concerns people may have or to learn more about our group.

How should a person react when they meet someone who stutters?

For some people stuttering may look like an easy problem that can be solved with some simple advice. However for many adults it can be a chronic life-long disorder.
The presentation will offer some useful and commonsense tips for speaking with someone who stutters.

The Nepean Centrepointe Library is located at 101 Centrepointe in the old Nepean City Hall building and right next to the Centrepointe Theatre.

I first took speech therapy some 30 years ago in Ottawa and recently completed a semi-intensive course at the Ottawa Stuttering Treatment Clinic. I am an active member of OAPWS and appreciate the support and sharing of common experiences.
