    His parents should be proud of him, great confidence in his presentation – you have done a great job in addressing your son’s stuttering and he in turn is inspiring and EMPOWERING OTHERS.

    Dovid,

    Thank you for your article. Hatzlacha on your continued growth and perseverance. I also suffer from a stammer, and to explain it to someone who does not have it, is simply impossible (in my opinion). All I can say, is continue pushing yourself. I try that the whole time – and it can get you far. I just started public speaking, and it does wonders for your confidence.

    Amazing!!!

    For amazing inspiration, read “As Long as I Live” the life story of Aharon Margalit – who besides having a stutter, was paralyzed from polio, yet recovered to become an internationally acclaimed public speaker. (In Hebrew the book goes by the title “Et-haleich”).

    Amazing courage.
    For men who stutter in the community, there is a monthly support group in boro park. Which is arranged by the Jewish Stuttering Association. Email them for date and time. [email protected]
    I know they also have groups in lakewood for men. And groups for ladies in monsey.

    Great article, and it really is amazing to see progress in areas that most people would expect to see no organized effort to promote awareness. It is a great example for people that suffer from other things too, sometimes help is found in places that don’t necessarily produce a cure- but rather awareness and unity and support. More power to you- may you move forward with confidence.

    Thank you

    I am so thrilled that we are spreading awareness! Stuttering is becoming more and more common as people do less listening and more computer playing.

    When I was in camp in Minnesota, I was made fun of and told I would never get a shidduch. And no one stood up for me.

    This is a difficult deck to be dealt with. I am stuttering adult and have been covert if you know what that means. I have a fantastic book tricks to have people believe that I speak as well as others who are fluent. So far I have tricked a beautiful woman into marrying me and have fooled the public into believing in me to operate a successful business.Some might think this is cowardly but it works for me.

    I am also married and I stutter. And I have to say getting married B’H boosted my self-confidence tremendously, and really helped improve my stutter.

    Good for you! Chazak Chazak! It’s certainly not an easy deck, totally agreed. But things DO and CAN get better.
