We applaud Peter Reitzes’ July 2014 article, “The Powered-Up Parent.” Parental involvement in the early treatment of stuttering is crucial. After all, parents are the real experts concerning their own child.
As Reitzes says, many parents are surprised at how important a role they play. They may expect to drop their child off at therapy and hope that his stuttering will be “fixed” by the time they pick him up.
More than 15,000 parents of preschoolers have contacted us in recent years, and many have reported back that changes they made in the child’s environment made all the difference in reducing or even eliminating the child’s stuttering.
We thank Peter for his evidence-based discussion on the importance of including parents in treatment.
