The Old Capitol is seen on Nov. 25, 2018.

It was a breath of fresh air to read your article “UI aims to support students who stutter with diversity, equity and inclusion” about the good work being done at Wendell Johnson Speech and Hearing Clinic as well as the formation of a chapter of the National Stuttering Association in Iowa City.

The National Stuttering Association is an excellent organization that has done so much to help people who stutter through their support groups and other features. Kudos to the Iowa chapter and Maggie Votroubek for taking the initiative to start this support group to help other people.

Also, for the Spanish-speaking population, tartmudez.org has free stuttering resources available in Spanish.
