About SAY: The Stuttering Association for the Young:

SAY commemorates World SAY Day, the day that gives a voice to all people who stutter. SAY believes that every person who stutters has a voice that matters and it is a voice that deserves to be heard. This day becomes part of National Stuttering Awareness Week, established by an act of Congress in 1988.

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) organization, has offered comprehensive and innovative programs that address the physical, social and emotional impacts of stuttering. For 13 years, SAY has helped young people who stutter develop the self-confidence, lasting friendships and support they need to express themselves fully and follow their dreams.
