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: The Stuttering Association for the Young (formerly Our Time) has offered comprehensive, innovative programs that address the physical, social and emotional impacts of stuttering. For 15 years, so many incredible children have come to our programs in despair. We have been lifted by their courage and have witnessed the transformation that occurs when children who stutter develop the self-confidence, lasting friendships and support they need to express themselves fully and follow their dreams.
We believe that every young person who stutters has a voice that matters and it is a voice that deserves to be heard.
When you support SAY, you make anything possible in the life of a child who stutters. You help us continue to offer important Summer Camp, Confident Voices, Speech Therapy programs and more, and help ensure that SAY can provide financial aid to families-in-need so that all children have access to our innovative programming.
