Libraries offer self- therapy book for those that stutter Self-Therapy tbr the Stutterer is the classic self-help guide by the founder of The Stuttering Foundation, Malcohn Fraser. It is written to and for the many adults and teens who stutter. The 192- page book is available at most public libraries including the Burr Oak City Library, Formoso Public Library, Jewell Public Library, Mankato City Public Library. This book outlines a seffthempy program which describes what the per- son who stutters can do to work to- wards better communication. It is of- ten used as a supplement to speech therapy. Charles Van Riper said about this book. "There are always some who stutter who are unable to get profes- sional help and others who do not seem to be able to profit from it. There are some who prefer to be their own thera- pist. In this book, Malcolm Fraser has provided guidance for those who must help themselves. Knowing well from his own experience as a stutterer the difficulties of self-therapy, he outlines a series of objectives and challenges that should serve as a map for the person who is lost in the dismal swamp of stuttering and wants to find a way out."
