    Default Stuttering...

    How many of you have or have had stuttering problems?

    What kinds of situations cause you to stutter?

    How do you resolve them?

    I have no advice, but since I was about 25 I've been a very occasional stutterer. It more amuses than irks me, but if it were regular I wouldn't like it.

    I added a new question to the OP.

    And notice how I didn't ask "How do I resolve them?" but rather "How do you resolve them?"

    My daughter has this issue, usually when speaking to people she doesn't know very well or people who just don't handle her Asperger's very well. She doesn't do it so much around me, seems to express herself more fluently and easily, but she stutters like hell when my mom's around and used to with her teachers before I took her out of school.

    I've read up on it and as far as I can tell, the cardinal rule for those who are being spoken to by the stuttering person is to NEVER correct them or finish their sentences, never draw attention to it in any way. The best way to help is just carry on as normal and pretend you don't notice. The stuttering is usually due to nerves, and the more you focus on it the more nervous they get.

    So the advice for people who stutter seems to be to slow yourself down when you talk and let the other person wait for you to think of what you're gonna say, frame the words in your head and enunciate clearly, and if you can face it, warn the person that sometimes you stutter and ask them in advance not to correct you if you do.

    I don't have a stutter but for some reason there was a point in time when I become interested in learning about it. There are a lot of people who stutter to varying degrees and there is a lot of information out there about it if you just look for it. I think people who have a stutter find it inspiring to read about celebrities (actors, athletes, news anchors etc) who once had the problem and overcame it. I have also seen a couple of people who stutter and just simply don't care what people think about it and carry on conversation like usual and that seems to work for them.

    Well, I really didn't notice I had a stutter until I talked to this girl on the phone, who I first IMed with at a dating site. She said I had a stuttering problem and was turned off because I couldn't carry the conversation.

    really? she said that? sounds a bit odd to me... I mean who wouldn't be nervous for a conversation like that? Hell, I'd stutter in that situation too! And she blamed and rejected you for it? What a bitch! :steam:

    If I were you I'd be turned off by her insensitivity and count my blessings...

    Well, she mentioned my stuttering problem in a polite fashion, but no one was carrying the conversation, and she was possibly turned off by that. I tried my best at coming up with topics to discuss, but I just couldn't. And this girl was the only one who responded to the message I sent her out of like the ten of whom I sent messages to stating we had things in common.
