Thanks to all those who came out to hang on a holiday in the rain! We had a nice group of 11 on Monday, with 2 brave first timers. We spent much of the group talking about how to raise awareness about stuttering in our personal lives and the larger world. In honor of International Stuttering Awareness Day on October 22nd, we went around the room and each of us picked one executable action to share this part of our lives with others this month. Here are a few:

  • Post a facebook status about stuttering
  • Advertise stuttering on a first date next week
  • Continue dialogue with family about stuttering
  • Educate pre-school teachers at work
  • Remain patient and friendly with difficult receptionist
  • Advertise his stuttering in class before reading
  • Wear a t-shirt/bracelet/pin about stuttering
  • Meet with higher-ups at work to improve conditions for stutterers in her school
  • Send email to co-workers about ISAD


  • International Stuttering Awareness Day (ISAD) is on October 22nd. There are a few cool things happening around this.
  • First, check out the ISAD Online Conference for free articles about stuttering
  • Second, come to an event the American Institute for Stuttering is hosting on Wed evening, Oct 22nd with the National Stuttering Association!! It is a “scavenger hunt,” which will be a good way to put ourselves out there, spread awareness about stuttering and connect with other people in the NYC stuttering community. Here are the details
    • Meet at 6:30pm at 27 West 20th St, Suite 1203
    • We will break into teams at AIS then head out
    • The hunt ends at The Watering Hole at 106 E 19th St
    • If you can’t make it to the hunt, you can meet everyone at the bar at 7:45PM.

Until November, enjoy the summer climates
