Nearly 1% of the population (3 million people) stutter which means the typical classroom teacher is likely to encounter a student that struggles with fluency, but not often enough to feel comfortable with the situation.
For some students, talking openly about their stutter whether in a group of speech students or to their entire classroom, will decrease anxiety and allow them to become the resident “expert.” For others, discussions about managing classroom speaking expectations might be better handled privately or the teacher may wish to share information with a few classmates without including the student who stutters.
Each situation is unique.
