Now scheduling. H i ; GRAFTON, N.D. Parents ea- gerly anticipate the moment wher their child first begins to talk. But for some parents, it is a time of anx- iety because their child struggles to get words out. As many as five per- cent of preschool children nation- wide have repetitions and prolon- gations of sounds severe enough to be of concern to their parents. The DVD in English and Span- ish, Stuttering and Your Child: Help for Parents, helps parents detect stuttering and take action to-, ward helping their child and is available at most public libraries• Some libraries have an older video format. The Carnegie Regional Library in Grafton received the free DVD Ph.D., of the University of CoIL orado at Boulder, Diane Hill, M.A., of Northwestern University, Patri- cia Zebrowski, Ph.D., of the Uni- versity of Iowa, and Kristin Chmela, M.A., also of Northwest- ern University. These experts address common concerns that parents have about their child, such as how to help the child at home and whether to seek the advice of a speech pathologist. Strategies parents can use to help reduce stuttering are given through- out the DVD and include reducing the number of questions they ask the child, focusing on taking turns during conversations, and making time to read or talk with the child in a relaxed manner. and agreed to shelve it.
