Yes Ira, there is a role for National and International Stutters’ Organizations. Some ideas are: putting on teasing/bullying workshops for children who stutter at National conventions, inviting children to write articles for newsletters, and possibly having workshops to help children become their own advocates (with support and consent of their parents of course) and advocates for others in terms of doing their public education work within their schools. This is an issue that will need re-addressing over the years to come. I understand that there have been teasing/bullying discussions and workshop at national conventions and many state or local self-help meetings and conferences. I will be happy to work with any organization who is interested in developing materials, workshops, etc. Take care – Marilyn
