The LCCC Speech Language Pathology Assistant Program and Stuttering Support Group are sponsoring a screening of the award-winning film, My Beautiful Stutter from 5-7 p.m. on Friday, Mar. 26.
Anyone interested in viewing the stream virtually should pre-register online. Those who register will receive information and links for the virtual screening.
My Beautiful Stutter follows 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 (SAY), 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Their journey to SAY find some close to suicide, others withdrawn and fearful, exhausted and defeated from failed fluency training, societal pressure to not stutter or the decision to remain silent.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.
