MOVIE SCREENING
“I am so excited to host the documentary screening of MY BEAUTIFUL STUTTER.

ON THURSDAY FEBRUARY the 27th AT THE MIDDLETOWN ARTS CENTER FROM 7:00 – 8:30pm 

This documentary is a must see story about five kids who stutter, ages 9 to 18, from all over the United States and all walks of life, who, after experiencing a lifetime of bullying and stigmatization, meet other children who stutter at an interactive arts-based program, The Stuttering Association for the Young, based in New York City. Their journey to SAY find some close to suicide, others withdrawn and fearful, exhausted and defeated from failed fluency training, societal pressures to not stutter or the decision to remain silent. Over the course of a year we witness first hand the incredible transformation that happens when these young people of wildly different backgrounds experience for the first time the revolutionary idea at the heart of SAY: that it’s okay to stutter.

We are all human beings who want to be heard, and that means letting everyone have as much time as they need to speak… Taro
This is the best documentary about stuttering so far… Ultimately it is a movie about our need for acceptance and the power of unconditional love to heal the soul… This film can replace text books for Speech Pathology students and professionals as well as providing support and hope for parents and youngsters struggling with this physical challenge...
