Stutter filter: what can I do to best set a stutterer at ease?

I have a phone screen later this morning. The recruiter just emailed me "I thought to make you aware he has a slight stutter however he is still perfectly understandable." My understanding is that stuttering has in part something to do with confidence and comfort. How can help the candidate here?
More details: I'm in California. The candidate is in the northeast of England. We'll be using Skype for the call. Frequently these are voice-only calls, but the candidate may be able to use video, which I always prefer.
How can make this go as smoothly for the candidate as possible?
