The UMD Stuttering Home Page


Welcome to our Web Page!

The information in this site was originally researched and compiled by students in CSD 3510 Stuttering at the University of Minnesota Duluth, during spring quarter 1997. The creation of this site constituted one piece of a larger public relations class project designed to educate the public about stuttering. These students have since graduated and moved on in their lives, but their web page lives on for the public to read and enjoy.
