Public speaking can help stutterers
Your article “Overcoming stammer by speaking in public” hit home with me. I, too, have had success with speech therapy and, like Joyce Smith, I have benefited greatly from public speaking.
Toastmasters gave me great experience and I recommend membership in this organisation to everyone — stutterer and non-stutterers alike — to improve public-speaking skills. I hope your article directs many people in Bermuda to Toastmasters International.
Like every other country, stuttering affects Bermuda the same in that 1 per cent of adults and about 5 per cent of children stutter. I also wish to recommend the free resources of the Stuttering Foundation (stutteringhelp.org), a non-profit organisation with a famous website that offers a slew of free resources such as downloadable books, streaming videos and a lot more.
