You have a child in elementary school who stutters. He has likely been stuttering for years-since he started talking. He's likely received or continues to receive speech therapy through school or a private center. He may be frustrated with his speech. He may not participate in activities or volunteer answering out-loud in class. He may experience bullying. He may change his words to avoid a stutter. He may rely on others to "talk" for him.
