What to Expect
We are expecting a relatively intimate group of about 75-100 people who stutter. The day will consist of 4-5 core workshops exploring topics like the challenges we face in our day-to-day lives (and what helps), how stuttering has been understood throughout history, and what we can learn from the accomplishments of the disability rights movement.
The workshops will be run by people who stutter, including NSA chapter leaders, people who research and write about stuttering, long-time self-help activists, and relative newcomers to the stuttering community.
You can expect a detailed description of the workshops in the coming weeks (probably closer to the end of September).
Coffee/tea and lunch will be provided free of charge.
Who We Are
We are a group of people who know each other through the New York-area stuttering community. Many of us are regular attendees and/or chapter leaders at the National Stuttering Association groups in Manhattan and Brooklyn. Our community is ever-expanding and deepening.
At our monthly meetings, we talk about what it’s like to be a person who stutters, the challenges we face, and our hopes for the future. We decided that we wanted to take an entire day to come together and take these conversations further through a combination of workshops and discussions.
