I’ve Learned Tools In Speech


My name is Derek. I’m 8 years old. I go to Canyon Elementary School. I started stuttering when I was 3 and my speech teacher is Miss Jane.


In speech therapy I learn tools such as stretchy speech. Stretchy speech is when you hold onto the first sound for 1 – 2 seconds, then move through the word. For example, l-----ike.


This is another tool that I learned: sliding out, which means when you feel tension in your speech muscles, you release the tension and slide through the word. So if I block on the ‘F’ sound in football, I release all the tension from my lips and teeth and say the word.


I chose a picture of Derek Jeter because my name is Derek and I like playing baseball.

Always Try


Hello, my name is James. I am a 9 year old fourth grader in Michigan. I’ve been stuttering since I was five years old. Most people I talk to don’t even realize that I stutter until I tell them. The other people sometimes laugh. I use slow rate, stretchy speech and pausing. They usually help me out when I’m stuck. If you stutter just like me, have courage and you definitely need to try.
