Dear Editor,

International Stuttering Awareness Day is Oct. 22, and it's a great time to remind your readers that there are speech-language pathologists in the Lehighton area who specialize in helping people who stutter.

The nonprofit Stuttering Foundation provides free resources for your readers, including a list of local therapists. Just call 800-992-9392, or visit our Web site, www.StutteringHelp.org [1]. Click on "Resources" at the top and then "Therapy referral lists."

In addition, our materials are in 8,773 libraries nationwide. To see if your local public library shelves our materials, just click on "Resources" at the top and then "Check your library" at the website listed above.

We also provide free e-books, downloadable brochures, free streaming videos, information on the latest research, and self-help materials compiled by the leading authorities.

Thank you for helping us reach those who stutter in your community.

Sincerely yours,

Jane Fraser

President

Memphis, Tenn.
