Will stuttering limit my ability to communicate effectively?

Effective communication and stuttering are not mutually exclusive. You can stutter on every word and be an amazingly effective communicator. The falsehood that fluency is a prerequisite for effective communication has been perpetuated for decades — despite children, teens, and adults consistently reporting that trying to talk without stuttering compromises their desire and ability to communicate. The Blank Center approaches stuttering with the knowledge that effective communication should not be defined by society’s limiting view of ‘fluency.’ Upon completion of our programming, our participants notice increased confidence in their communication skills and they frequently become better communicators than those who do not stutter.
