I think that you've provided many great ideas in your paper. I'm excited that group therapy can sound so fun for the kids, and still have them working on improving thier speech. The philosophy behind the program sounds really good. It's nice that the children are learning that they have a voice in their speaking and also in their therapy. You mention that the summer camp include parents. I was wondering if you've ever included siblings in a program? It seems to me that this might help other children in the family understand stuttering more, and the emotions involved with it. I was wondering what your thoughts on this were? Thanks for your time.
