Stuttering affects over 3 million Americans. While it’s often easy to recognize that someone has the condition, there are many myths surrounding what causes stuttering.

This week on “Take Care,” Jane Fraser, president of the Stuttering Foundation of America, helps clear up some of those misconceptions about stuttering. The foundation is the oldest and largest nonprofit organization dedicated to the prevention and treatment of stuttering. Fraser is the daughter of Stuttering Foundation founder Malcolm Fraser, who established the organization in 1947.
