Reading the Nov, 27 story, "Duluth support group offers a place to stutter freely," made me wish I had access to such a great resource during my early years.
I was interested in Kayla Haas' comment that, because of her stuttering, she was "so uncomfortable in my own skin." I was always comfortable in my own skin with my stuttering; unfortunately, other people made me feel uncomfortable because of they way they viewed stuttering. I always thought I spoke correctly, and the other 99 percent of the population did not speak correctly.
I applaud the people responsible for the Duluth chapter of the National Stuttering Association, a great organization that helps people throughout the country. Also a valuable resource for people who can't make support-group meetings is the website of the Stuttering Foundation; it provides downloadable books and brochures, as well as other valuable resources.
I hope the News Tribune's article sparks other media outlets to cover the good work being done by this support group for the stuttering community in greater Duluth.
