Just writing to say how helpful Speaking-Out-Loud is to my family as we have stutterers amongst us. Teaching them confidence in speaking is a huge priority.
Our question is concerns one of our children who has reached the final in a speaking competition and now has to do a two minute speech on an unknown topic. How can we prepare him for this? When you know your speech by practising it flows easily but when you don't know what your topic will be, how does he do it without stuttering? What sort of topics would they put forward for a 13 year old? We dont know if you can help us but any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
