Stuttering as an adult can be difficult. Although therapy is often helpful, after having been in therapy throughout our school careers, it may not be very enticing. Access to a specialist, time, and the expense can be additional barriers to therapy. Self-help, another oft-suggested activity, may also be problematic. In this presentation, Christopher Constantino, Ph.D., CCC-SLP, of The Florida State University presents an orientation towards stuttering that offers opportunities for growth. He discusses how to become more comfortable stuttering and how to speak with greater ease and spontaneity.
