By
From page A13 | July 11, 2014 |

Andrea Malenica of Davis was one of only 21 speech-language pathologists chosen to attend an intensive workshop on stuttering therapy.

Malenica participated in the workshop, “Using Cognitive Approaches to Working with People Who Stutter,” June 16-20 in Boston. It was cosponsored by the Stuttering Foundation and Boston University.

The Stuttering Foundation estimates that more than 3 million Americans stutter. While there are no miracle cures, a qualified speech clinician can help children and adults make significant progress toward speaking fluently.

The foundation notes that the 297 past graduates of the Boston workshop program have frequently created a “ripple effect” back in their home communities as they continue to share their knowledge.
