New York, April 2019 - The biggest difference between business in the US and Germany? According to two German startup founders, it’s not tax laws, investment models or mindsets. It’s small talk.

Communication differences were the first thing she noticed.
As Halloween approaches, we find ourselves looking to the stars for costume inspiration. But why not look at some stars who have actually inspired the stuttering community? Emily Blunt – The “go-to” name when we think of a celebrity who stutters. Her path for stuttering therapy was interesting, as her speech therapist actually recommended her to try different accents to decrease her stutter. That therapy technique has now made her who she is today!
Over 70 million people worldwide stutter. Learning this statistic makes us eager to support those who stutter and there is no better time like the present! Check out these easy (and fun!) ways you can give back, too:
Although we’re based in NYC, there are local stuttering events nationwide!
You’re probably wondering to yourself...why should I try Speechagain? How is it different from therapy I’ve tried in the past? Well, I’m here to tell you. As you know, stuttering is a unique type of communication disorder. It cannot be “cured”, but there are multiple therapy approaches that all claim to be effective.
