Living with a Special Need: Speech Impairment

This series educates young readers about a variety of special needs their peers live with every day. When a young person can’t speak easily, sometimes other kids think he’s not very intelligent. That’s often not the case, though. A person with a speech impairment may be just as bright as anyone else. Read about David, who struggles with stuttering, and Martha, who has difficulty articulating certain sounds and discover how they overcome their challenges–and how they rise above the prejudice they each face. For ages 12 and up.
