"From a Parent's Point of View"
by LISE G. CLOUTIER STEELE
A Collection of Short Stories written by the mother of a dysfluent teen who has stuttered since the age of 3, with a chapter on recent scientific research into stuttering by David Forster and published by NC Press Limited In 1991, Lise G. Cloutier-Steele took time out from her job as a technical translator to establish the Ontario Stuttering Project (OSP), an organization aimed at creating greater awareness for stuttering. In 1993 she was the recipient of a Canada 125 award in recognition of her volunteer efforts to help other parents of children who stutter. Born in Ottawa, Ontario, she continues to live there with her husband Paul and her sons Lucas and Jonathan. "At times humorous, at times tragic, the book documents a mother's quest to ensure that her stuttering son receive both a quality education and the best speech therapy possible. As strange as it may seem, in these modern times, the most basic right of a good education and quality special services all too often are not readily attainable for parents of children who stutter. Teachers administrators and, unfortunately, many speech-language pathologists are unaware of the impact stuttering has on a child's educational and social progress. My hope is that Mrs. Cloutier-Steele's experience will encourage the rest of us to increase our efforts on behalf of children who stutter and their parents." Carl W.
