Kill Your Stutter invents corny new name

The phony web offer, "Kill your Stutter", has created an alternate identity under the new name "Stutterolax". We have written warnings about this offer before. The site is still going strong. To anyone who comes across offers for this product, you need not throw your money away, it is not a cure as it claims to be. "Stutterolax" even tried to post spam on the CSA YouTube page. Cheeky!

Podcast featuring Laughter's Voice camp co-founders

The co-founders of the proposed upcoming camp for kids who stutter in Ontario are interviewed on Daniele Rossi's Stuttering is Cool podcast site. Andrea Skinner and her son Felix describe why they started the camp and what campers can expect from it. They deal with some technical recording mishaps due to being outside in the cold weather, but it is a fun and informative interview. Andrea makes a great point about the speech therapists who participate in the camp: that it is important for them to have the chance to see the children in a non-clinical environment. Check it out!
