Living with stuttering at any age can be a challenge. An adult may have a better understanding of the stutter, but can still be learning to cope with it. Whether you have been living with a stutter for awhile or have just developed it, reading about it can be a big help to navigate and understand the stutter. Speech Easy would like to highlight five books that we think could be a big help.
