Ben is a 9-year-old boy who attends the fourth grade at an elementary school in Oregon where he enjoys learning about science, math, and music. A good student, Ben says that he would like to become a veterinarian someday. However, his teacher reports that because of his stuttering, Ben refuses to answer questions in class and is terrified by an upcoming assignment to deliver a 5-min expository speech. Moreover, although Ben was once a popular playmate, he no longer spends time with his peers after school, preferring instead to go home and care for his family’s cats and dogs. Ben’s mother reports that this change in behavior is related to an increase in the amount of teasing and bullying that he has experienced at school because of his stuttering.
