About the Author

Marilyn Langevin, PhD., R.SLP, SLP(C), CCC-SLP

Dr. Langevin has a long history with ISTAR, having served as Clinical Director prior to pursuing PhD studies at the University of Sydney in Australia.

During her master's degree, and inspired by children who were bullied though teasing and other forms of bullying - some of whom stuttered - Marilyn sought to develop a program that would simultaneously help all children deal with bullying and improve attitudes toward children with differences, particularly children who stutter. 

"...when I began the research it became apparent that to be effective we must work with all children who are involved in teasing and other forms of bullying - the victims, their peers, and the children who bully. This led to a marriage of two goals: to provide educational materials that changed attitudes toward bullying, while at the same time improving attitudes toward children who stutter.

I sincerely hope that this program will make a contribution to the anti-bullying/anti-violence movement that is now gaining a welcome and overdue momentum, and that it will foster healthier and more satisfying relationships among children with and without differences."
