I'm sorry you're going through this!  It has to be a very challenging age to deal with this!  Have you ever seen a speech therapist?  I would think that would be a great place to start. Can you talk to your parents about this?  Or if not a parent, maybe a teacher or guidance counselor?  They should be able to help you figure out what you'd need to do to get some help for this issue.  I hope you're able to find a workable answer.  Good luck!

garrettandelsasmom is right. Tell your school counselor or a teacher that you want to see a Speech-Language Pathologist (also known as a speech therapist).

You have a right to free help for stuttering through your school district. They will probably be glad to help, but if they don't seem to want to help it is because they don't know who to send you to. If that happens, you should keep asking other teachers/counselors at your school.

Every school district has a Speech Language Pathologist assigned to help students with problems such as the one you are having. Good luck in your journey and best wishes! If you are unable to find help, come back here and send me a note. I'll help.

Hi.  I also think that looking at any underlying anxiety you have would be helpful.  Do you stutter more under certain circumstances which is common?
