I found your article to be very interesting. As I read your article I began to think of the Capacities and Demand theory by Starkweather, and sure enough as I scrolled down, you had commented on that. You also mentioned in your article that it was apparent that these students (high school age) had a high probability of feeling shame or guilt about their stutteirng. Do you think a support group that would be geared towards only this special population would allow these adolescents to release some of their negative thoughts and feelings that are manifested by their stuttering?
