This production is a culmination of Our Time NYC, a program where kids who stutter write and rehearse original short plays, musicals, & films under the guidance of artists and educators. In a supportive community, kids discover the power of expression, imagination, and their individual voices. Our Time provides this program to all participants free of charge.
When & Where
SAY: The Stuttering Association for the Young (Formerly Our Time)
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.
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, The Stuttering Association for the Young, a non-profit 501(c)(3), has offered comprehensive, innovative programs that address the physical, social and emotional impacts of stuttering. For 13 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 dream.
SAY offers several innovative programs:
Camp SAY: Our sleep-away summer camp provides a uniquely fun, highly immersive and transformative experience for young people who stutter.
After-School Arts: Our unique approach helps young people develop essential communication skills, forge new friendships and fully express their thoughts, ideas and dreams.
Speech Therapy: We help young people who stutter build self-confidence, enjoy greater independence, increase school participation and advocate for themselves.
