Occasionally we add resources helpful to those battling stuttering. Those resources are listed below:

The voice-over TV star of the popular ABC comedy, “Downward Dog” is Samm Hodges, who overcame life-long stuttering by using some of the methods that SAA shares with PWS, which can be found in the “Stuttering & Anxiety Self-Cures” by Lee G. Lovett. For example, he massively read aloud and pretended to be an actor, concentrating on over-pronouncing words. He offers another excellent example of a self-cured stutterer.
