[Guest blogger Mark Bulg writes:] I'd like to start my contribution to The Stuttering Brain with questions, rather than answers. There are two questions that seem to be favorite discussion-starters in the stuttering therapeutic community, perhaps to the point of cliche. The first asks: If there was a pill that cured stuttering, would you take it? The second, sometimes phrased as a statement, is: Is stuttering a gift? I’d like to rephrase those questions, and start a new discussion.
Question number one: If there was a pill that caused persistent developmental stuttering, how many non-stutterers could you convince to take it?
Question number two: If stuttering is a gift, whom would you give it to?
