Conference for People Who Stutter Set for May 15 in NYC
For all you older adolescents and adults who stutter in the New York Metropolitan area, I am pleased to share with you the following announcement from the New York City Chapters of the National Stuttering Association:
We are excited to announce that on Sunday, May 15, the NYC Chapters will hold our first annual conference for people who stutter! It will be a day of workshops to support, educate, and empower people who stutter (age 16 and up) as we explore the "Past, Present, and Future of Stuttering" together and with a few special guest speakers. This one-day conference — designed by people who stutter, for people who stutter — will delve into the issues that are important to our community.
Our day of workshops will take place on Sunday, May 15th from 9:30am-5:00pm at the Atlantic Acting School on 76 Ninth Ave, Suite 537 in the Chelsea area of Manhattan. It is a low-cost event ($10 per person), and lunch is included.
