Aside from working on being patient and calm when the stutterer is trying to speak, friends and family can contact support groups.
Such support groups include the National Stuttering Association at 800-WeStutter (800-937-8888) and The Stuttering Foundation. The Stuttering Foundation has a resource section with books, videos, newsletters, materials translated into other languages and more.
