Edmonton - UPI

A program in Canadian elementary schools designed to rid schools of bullying behavior directed at students who stutter is effective, researchers say. Marilyn Langevin, acting executive director and director of research at the Institute for Stuttering Treatment and Research at the University of Alberta and creator of the Teasing and Bullying Unacceptable Behavior program, said it is taught province-wide to students in grades 3 to 6 to reduce teasing and bullying directed at children with differences. In this study, Langevin and her team surveyed more than 600 students who participated in the program to evaluate its effectiveness at changing attitudes about stuttering. Children who know someone who stutters -- a family member, friend or peer -- generally have more positive attitudes toward them, Langevin said.
