Abstract. Although terminologies have shifted from “stutterer” to person with stuttering (PWS), stuttering still has stereotypes attached to it. This paper outlines an attempt at destigmatization and a needs analysis for such endeavours in future. The frequency of correct responses to a short survey questionnaire were analysed before and after an awareness program on stuttering. Correct responses to the pre-test were also compared across variables like gender, occupation and contact with a PWS. People from the health sector tended to have slightly more knowledge about stuttering, though their overall levels of awareness still need improvement. The findings revealed a need for an increase in frequency of attempts at awareness and changes in methods of dissemination of information about stuttering in India.
