Kids who stutter don’t have to feel isolated or alone. If you you know a young person who stutters, SAY: The Stuttering Association for the Young (a not-for-profit organization) is here for them with FREE support and resources. Since 2001, SAY has been working with children and teens who stutter (and their families), using the arts to unlock expression, confidence, and personal growth. SAY fosters an environment of creativity, empathy, and inspiration that gives room for the expansion of possibility. At SAY, you’ll find a community that makes each participant stronger and more capable than they ever thought they could be.
SAY: DC is dedicated to providing a safe, inspiring space for young people who stutter to be deeply heard and supported. There is solace in knowing you are not alone — that your struggle and your strengths are uniquely your own but that they also fit into a constellation of common experiences that other people face every day. The SAY culture of acceptance, deep listening, and reflection allows for countless tangible moments of success, transcendence, and joy.
Central to SAY’s mission is the breaking down of all financial barriers to attendance. SAY: DC is dedicated to providing its award-winning programming completely free of charge. SAY offers a broad range of programs in the DMV and this year alone, SAY: DC will underwrite more than $250,000 in programmatic costs so that all families have access to these important programs.
SAY: DC is enrolling for its 2020-21 season now. All offerings are free of charge, but registration is required, so sign up your child who stutters today.
