STUTTERLESS

As high school students, the most important aspects of our social interactions are our self-esteem and confidence. However, for those who struggle with a stutter, a common yet often misunderstood speech disfluency, even simple classroom activities can prove to be daunting. Although most technology is currently lagging behind in addressing this issue, Foothill juniors Keerthana Nallamotu and Nick Jiang have taken a step towards solving it. Their application, StutterLess, is a personalized diagnosis and training tool that identifies the user's stuttering severity and returns an individualized activity plan best catered to their unique fluency pattern. They are currently State Winners in the Samsung Solve for Tomorrow Challenge and have won $15,000 for our school so far in Samsung technology and products. Let's wish them all the best for their upcoming levels!
