Over 70 million people stutter on a daily basis,
including 5% of all children. Young people who stutter often face unimaginable
fear and cruelty from a world that doesn’t understand them. Over time, they may
recoil from the world, silencing themselves to hide their stutter,
embarrassment and shame. Young people who stutter may also feel incredibly
isolated and alone, and many face daily ridicule, teasing and
bullying. Since 2001, SAY has offered comprehensive, innovative programs
that address the physical, social and emotional impacts of stuttering.
Since 2001 SAY has offered comprehensive and innovative programs, including Confident Voices After-School & Weekend Programs, Camp SAY & Speech Therapy. Our programs address the physical, social and emotional impacts of stuttering.
