Poor little guy. Maybe this is the start of him really wanting to focus on dealing with the stutter. It seems to me, from my experience, that boys start to go through so much "stuff" around that age. I have no doubt that you will all get through it!

Going to a speech therapist who is trained to treat stuttering sure would be helpful. Have you checked www.stutteringhelp.org to see if they list any near you? Click on "referrals" to find out. They also have some wonderful materials for speech therapists to help them learn how to help stutterers, so you might share their web site with the therapist Pete is seeing. They have workshops to train SLPs, too. You might even want to read their newsletter to learn about the recent research on stuttering. I asked to be put on their mailing list so I can read their newsletter without having to stay at the computer. I love the kids page. This online book for children who stutter might be useful to you, too http://www.stutteringhelp.org/Default.aspx?tabid=210

Yes, thanks -- the speech therapist we're seeing in 2 weeks does indeed specialize in helping stutterers.

The speech therapist at the school is very familiar with the resources available -- and has passed along many useful web sites and such -- but she just doesn't have as much experience with stuttering as with other language difficulties.

I've got a whole bunch of web sites bookmarked!
