"Boo" Goodnight to Halloween

by Tracy Harrison

This story was written by Tracy Harrison, a graduate student at Temple University as an assignment to develop a story to be told to a group of preschool children at-risk for stuttering. The assignment was to focus on the needs of a particular child in the group but develop a story for everyone. Tracy's story is included in the appendix of Starkweather and Ackerman's book Stuttering. It was illustrated as a group project by Ben W. (age 8), Brad M.(age 10), David Y. (age 7), Lawrence M. (age 13), and Yehoshua L. (age 10), while attending the 1997 NSP convention in Buffalo, NY, and put together as on online book by Judy Kuster. It is copyrighted, but parents are permitted to download a single copy for their child if they wish. No commercial marketing of this book is allowed. Other such books, developed by students in speech pathology programs or by speech-language pathologists and children in their caseloads are welcome to be submitted to the Stuttering Home Page.
