Support for people who stutter

Nov. 4, 2009

KALAMAZOO--A new organization at Western Michigan University is providing support, education and resources for people who stutter and their families, as well as a forum for others who have a personal or professional interest.

The public is invited to an information session of the Stuttering Support Group from 6 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 11, in the atrium of the College of Health and Human Services. The group is sponsored by the WMU chapter of the National Stuttering Association in the Department of Speech Pathology and Audiology.

WMU has a history of helping people who stutter dating back to 1936, when the late professor Charles Van Riper started one of the first speech pathology programs in the country.
