This thesis project will provide information about stuttering and attempt to eliminate some of the stigmas attached to the disorder. By increasing awareness, more light will be cast on stuttering, eliminating some of the burden of disfluency. The disorder will no longer be a mystery if people understand that stuttering is composed of concrete thoughts, feelings and actions. A publicized campaign will dispel some of the negative views of this disorder and reduce the pressures that are created in different speaking situations. These stuttering awareness goals will be disseminated through a collection of design applications. The awareness campaign as presented in this thesis study consists of a postcard, poster, Web banner and Web site. The printed applications and Web banner will promote stuttering awareness while providing a link to www.stutteringawareness.com. This site allows viewers to obtain more information on the disorder and the campaign.
