These Are A Few Of My Favorite Things

by Judith Eckhardt

Please use this collection of some of my favorite handouts to help children who stutter. (The collection is linked in PDF files. You will need a free Adobe Acrobat reader to access them. If you don't already have one installed, you can get one at http://www.adobe.com/products/acrobat/readstep2.html)). Some of these handouts have been used for 40+ years and were initially typed on a manual typewriter. . Please read the introduction to learn why it is One of My Favorite Things. Feel free to print these handouts and to use them to help parents and grandparents, teachers and caregivers, and children who stutter. They have been used many, many times during my career as a speech and language pathologist and in workshops/in services for practicing SLPs in the USA and internationally.
