November Meeting Reminder & SLP Group!

Come join us this coming Monday on November 19th for our regular NSA Manhattan meeting! We’ll decompress with old friends and new friends, and talk about all thing stuttering related. We’ll meet for an hour and a half and afterwards, grab a drink at a bar nearby!

DATE: Monday, November 19
TIME: 7:30–9pm
LOCATION: 520 Eighth Avenue, between 36th and 37th Streets – 3rd Floor

Please arrive a little early is possible. There may be a short line to get past security. At the security desk, say you are going to A.R.T./New York on the 3rd floor. (This is the Alliance of Resident Theatres.) For security purposes, you will need to present a photo ID and have your picture taken. Take the left side elevators to get to the 3rd floor.

 

Also as many of you may already know, the NSA Manhattan chapter will be having an extra meeting this month, Wednesday, November 28th from 7:30pm to 9:00pm, at the same place above!

The format will be different, as it will be a combination between a support group and a panel to educate SLPs (Speech-Language Pathologists) and SLP students, like we did last year. This will be a great opportunity for members of our stuttering community to come and engage in dialogue with SLPs and educate about what it means to be a person who stutters. We hope that events like these can help foster connection between SLPs and people who stutter by helping SLPs learn how to be an ally and supporter for people who stutter, both in and out of the therapy room. For more information, please email manhattanstutters.slp@gmail.com for any questions!

DATE: Wednesday, November 28
TIME: 7:30–9pm

Breaking Free: An Intro to Improv

The NYC NSA chapters are hosting our first improv seminar hosted by our very own Marc Winski! Join us on April Fools, Sunday, April 1 from 3-5pm at the Manhattan chapter venue.

Did your heart just pound a little by reading something that had to do with ‘acting’ or ‘improvisation?’ Have you ever seen Whose Line Is It Anyway? and thought….”Wow, this is hilarious!!”? Come for an afternoon of judgement-free exploration and improvisation. “But Marc, I’m not an actor…” NOT TO WORRY. This is for everyone! This will introduce you to the the freeing benefits of “I don’t give a damn” and the lasting effects it can have on your daily life (including stuttering)!

Come explore, break out of your comfort zone, and have a lot of fun with people who just…well…get it!!

Warning: this may cause exorbitant amounts of laughter!
