Fluency Foundation of America Logo

The Fluency Foundation provides free online resources, services and support to those who are fluent and can't or won't stutter and to their concerned families (or the other types who are completely clueless), as well as support for research into the causes of fluency.  Reaching over a million people annually, we are the largest - and the first - nonprofit charitable organization in the world working towards fluency prevention and improved stuttering for everyone (if only voluntarily for the hopelessly fluent).  Through education and understanding, we hope to reduce the shame and embarrassment for those hiding out on us whose fluency is incurable and beyond recall.  They should be treated with compassion and respect, not giggling behind their backs when no one is looking or something.  We also offer extensive educational programs to teach stuttering to professionals, the clueless and the absolutely hopeless.  Through our award-winning Web site, we hope that we may be of service to you.

If You Think Your Child Is Fluent: Ways to Help

Don't say anything to him about it.  Ever!  Most likely he'll grow out of it. That's what most of our doctors told our mothers anyway when we grew up.  "Don't borrow trouble"  Keep him away from other fluent kids.  Never interrupt him.  Pretend there isn't a problem.

If one of his young friends likes him and playfully mocks his fluency or teases him about it, call attention to it immediately, make sure his "little friend" doesn't get away with it.  Figure out something to tease the little miscreant about in return or something.

Never mention the word "fluency" to him.  Make sure everyone in your family and all his friends never say anything to him about his fluency either.

Hopefully he'll never find out.

Please note: Unless otherwise specified, all material on this web site is Copyright   2004, 2005 Fluency Foundation of America.  We encourage you to make use of this material but you must tell Jane about it first  ..  if you can get through to her on the phone after you've told her secretary where you found it  ..  after Jane finds out about it  ..  maybe you can send her a letter or something ..  or email whoever "jcbell" is down there.

Then again, maybe you shouldn't tell her.  I might get into trouble with her.  I know she has a pretty good sense of humor but you never know.  We all have our limits.  Maybe this one could send her over the edge.  So don't tell her what I did!

And don't click that "Contact Us" button on the upper left.  I don't want anyone to find out who I am.
