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.
Since 2001, SAY: The Stuttering Association for the Young has been working with children and teens who stutter and their families, offering innovative programs addressing the physical, social, and emotional impacts of stuttering. SAY believes every child has the ability to be a great communicator.
SAY invites kids and teens who stutter to attend a FREE Day Camp in Washington, DC, on April 27 and 28, 2019. It’s the perfect opportunity for kids and teens (ages 8-18) to meet new friends who stutter and participate in exciting activities that help build confidence.
This two-day event will take place in DC at the historic and inspiring United States Chamber of Commerce. On both days, Camp will be from 9am to 5pm, and breakfast and lunch will be provided.
Parents/caregivers are encouraged to attend camp to meet and mingle with other parents of children who stutter. They can also join an educational parent group, hosted by experts in working with young people who stutter and their families.
This event is free, but space is limited and registration is required, so sign up your child who stutters today. Questions? Contact DC@SAY.org
This post is sponsored by SAY: The Stuttering Association for the Young, however, I only promote programs, events, and places that I genuinely believe in and think would appeal to KFDC readers.
