I really liked the strategies you discussed in your paper. I myself experienced bullying in high school for a period of time, and I understand the pain, shame, and embarrassment that comes with that. In particular I liked the idea of having a discussion/lecture on stuttering with the class. Children tease/taunt things they don't understand, and I've found from experience the more informed children are, the more tolerant they are of differences. I have worked as a TSS for children with Autism for seven years, and I've found that when you discuss Autism with the class, teasing, bullying, and meanness drop considerably. I feel your article has many valuable strategies to help those who stutter with bullying and teasing in the schools, and I really enjoyed reading about them.
