Stutter Experts Salute Colin Firth in 'The King's Speech' and Pray for His Oscar Gold


Colin Firth


The American Institute for Stuttering honors Firth for his portrayal of George VI in 'The King's Speech' who stammers, insisting he has helped people gain more understanding on the speech impedients.

America's leading experts on the causes and cures for stutterers have saluted Colin Firth for his portrayal of stammering royal George VI in "The King's Speech"-because they insist the actor has really helped shine a light on speech impediments.

Firth is a clear favorite to claim Oscars gold on Sunday, February 27 for his portrayal of the king in the film - and officials at the American Institute for Stuttering feel the honor will be well deserved.

Director Chamonix Sikora tells WENN, "The King's Speech" is a magnificent film, and it has had an enormous and important impact on our cause because it shows that anyone can have a stuttering disorder - even a king. We congratulate Colin for his Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild awards, and we wish him the best of luck at the Oscars."

Sikora claims more than three million Americans and 60 million people worldwide suffer from stuttering-related impediments. She adds, "Stuttering is extremely complex and often misunderstood, but help is available for anyone at any age. Whether it's early intervention for a young child or equipping someone to tackle a stressful job interview, we've been fortunate to help people gain lasting freedom from the disability of stuttering. It's a life-changing experience, both for the client and the clinician."
