The fact that the article profiled successful businesswoman Sharon Emery was powerful in showing people that people who stutter can be very successful and that the stereotypes are just bunk. For an extensive list of people who have excelled despite stuttering I recommend people look at the list of famous people who stutter on the website of the Stuttering Foundation (www. stutteringhelp.org). This website also has great information and resources for people who stutter and parents.
I want to suggest a possible topic for a future article: the fact that employer-based health coverage is quite hostile and frustrating to people who need speech therapy services, regardless of the speech problem. There needs to be more parity in this area of health coverage so that more people covered by such health plans have satisfactory access to speech therapy.
