Over 70 million people worldwide stutter, including 5% of all children. Children who stutter often face daily ridicule, teasing, and bullying, and resort to silence to hide their stutter. Many will withdraw from peers, teachers, and society, leaving them feeling isolated and alone.

For over 20 years, SAY has offered comprehensive and innovative programs that address the physical, social, and emotional impacts of stuttering: Through summer camp, regional day camps, speech therapy, and creative arts programming, SAY builds a community of acceptance, friendship, and encouragement where young people who stutter can develop the confidence and communication skills they need to thrive.
So many incredible young people have come to SAY in despair. We have been uplifted by their courage and the transformation that occurs when children who stutter can express themselves fully and understand that stuttering should never hold them back from achieving 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.
