We at The Stuttering Foundation of America applaud Donna Vickroy’s August 19 article on stuttering.
However, we want readers to know that “being nervous or scared” does not cause stuttering. And people who stutter cannot and should not go through life avoiding situations that “make them nervous or scared.”
Being open about stuttering is one of the most powerful ways to deal with this highly complex disorder.
