Emily Root, a licensed Speech-Language Pathologist is hosting a Stuttering Workshop for parents of children and young adults who stutter on Tuesday, November 14th at 7 p.m., at the Berkeley Heights Public Library.  The workshop will allow for parents to connect and gain support from other families who are also going through the Stuttering journey.  

In addition, Emily will be discussing the latest research and therapy techniques in treating and managing both core behaviors in stuttering, as well as the psychosocial factors which can greatly affect a child who stutters.
