there is a method to help minimize stuttering. When you are alone, practice speaking with your teeth closed. It is suppose to "retrain" your mouth.

Oh my god, why did this get burried? That's the FIRST thing that came into my mind. Don't worry OP, my boyfriend stutters and I think it's cute, though it may be frustrating to him/you. Just relax and I hope you get a good grade:3

What an asshole. Ignore that crappy teacher. I can't stand it when people mock or laugh at someone who struggles with stuttering/reading out loud. I read really quickly in my head, almost "skimming" fast. Basically like sight reading, and I can totally grasp the concept and understand everything, but catch me trying toread out loud? No way. My mouth can't keep up with my eyes. People literally think I can't read, and I'll be able to read something five times over before they are done w

Hey screw you, I have a lisp and people mess with me all the time about it. Making fun of a disability is the lowest thing you can do.

While that's true, not all stutters are just habitual. My husband has turrets and occasionally stutters. It's typically stress related, but not always.

#71- Actually, stuttering is often the result of learning difficulties, or some sort of physical disability and is medically classed as a 'motor disease'. You do not always develop a stutter, sometimes you're born unable to articulate properly. Also OP, your professor is a RAGING bitch, and should be fucking fired for that pathetic display of immaturity in a job that should command respect from her pupils.

people with lisps are cool with me and I have no problem with them. I actually like talking to them because they're normally really friendly, mainly because I've never met someone with a lisp that thought he was better than everyone else. good listeners good, since most aren't very confident in their voice.

Same thing happened to me. I have an oversized tongue, which causes me to have a lisp. My English teacher laughed at me during my speech a couple weeks ago.

To all of you who said the lady is mean, my sister stutters occasionally and laughs about it every time. So do I. She doesn't care because she knows stuttering is somewhat funny. Some people can't hold their laughter very well. I can't at all. But, the fact that his professor tried not to laugh is a good thing. Get it straight.

Hang in there OP! That's pretty unprofessional on her part, as an educator you'd think she'd know better than to laugh at a student

Unfortunately too many teachers don't. I have major social anxiety thanks to my teachers laughing at me. And I finally beat my stutter unless I'm mad or really tired.

Joking about seizures, (as seen on previous FML) : ok. Joking about stuttering: not okay. Please explain how a speech impediment is more serious than a life threatening condition

@45 yes, I would like to know the same. All disabilities ought to be treated equal if the hierarchy is going to be so skewed.

Usually I will joke about anything, but there's a difference: mocking epileptic people will not make them have more seizures, but mocking stutterers may make them more nervous and stutter more.
