Stuttering (Stammering)

I want to talk about one of the most misunderstood disabilities out there; and that is stuttering, also known as stammering in Europe. It's misunderstood because some people think that it is not a disability, when it is. Some people think that because I can still walk, see and hear, that it's not too serious. However, the truth is that it is the disability that gets lots of discrimination despite how intelligent such a person is.

Here are a couple of videos that show a couple of people who stutter and the device they are using to help in their situation. It costs around $5000 and it doesn't work for everybody all the time. I hope these videos give you a better idea on what stutters have to go through:
