SAY is here to provide you with the information, resources, and tools you need to make your interactions with a young person who stutters as productive and empowering as possible.
SAY offers a broad range of programs, including these special programs that help young people who stutter build confidence and communication skills.
Camp SAY is our American Camp Association (ACA)-accredited, 2-week summer camp for kids and teens who stutter, ages 8-18. Camp SAY combines the highest-quality, traditional summer camp experience with specialized programs and activities that help children who stutter build confidence, improve communication, and develop lifelong friendships.
Camp SAY is hosted at Pocono Springs Camp, a new, 60-acre, $8 million, state-of-the-art camp facility located in the beautiful Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania – just 75 miles from New York City and 100 miles from Philadelphia. Take a virtual tour.
Campers are welcomed by friendly staff and fellow campers who stutter and immediately see that Camp SAY is a very different place where they are free to express themselves without fear or ridicule. Camp programs and activities are specially designed to meet each child’s individual goals and needs. Speech therapy is available, too. So instead of worrying about stuttering, kids can experience the simple joy of being a child. Learn more about Camp SAY.
SAY’s Speech Therapy program provides comprehensive stuttering treatment that incorporates physical strategies to make speaking easier, as well as education, fear reduction, counseling, and parent/family integration. SAY’s Speech Therapy program offers a unique depth of stuttering experience and expertise for speech consultations, diagnostic evaluations, individual therapy, stuttering resources, and support. We facilitate self-help and parent groups and provide ongoing support for educators and speech professionals as well.
SAY Speech Therapy is led by a bilingual, licensed Speech-Language Pathologist offering a full spectrum of bilingual speech services, in English and Spanish, to support children who stutter and their families. Our custom-tailored strategies for kids and teens who stutter, ages 2-18, utilize a practical and holistic approach to stuttering therapy that addresses the unique needs of each child. Sessions are scheduled in our New York City office, but we also support professionals and young people nationally and beyond via Teletherapy sessions.

Our Confident Voices program utilizes a comprehensive and innovative approach to engage young people who stutter to other children who stutter to break down barriers and make them feel less isolated and alone.
Children who stutter are exposed to various types of performing arts, with no pressure to perform. This exposure to music, writing, acting, dance, and more enables children who stutter to fully express themselves and address the pressing issues they face in their everyday life. Read more about our Confident Voices After-School & Weekend program.
In addition to an expert Speech-Language Pathologist who works exclusively with young people who stutter, we offer innovative programs that connect groups of children who stutter to help them develop the skills they need to succeed.
These services will effectively complement the support that you are currently providing for a young person who stutters.
It’s a cruel reality that children who stutter face ridicule and bullying. So in addition to speech strategies, we also address other critical social and emotional issues. Learn more about our programs, including Speech Therapy, Confident Voices After-School & Weekend Programs, Camp SAY, Camp SAY: Across the USA, and SAY: DC.
Our leadership team conducts presentations for professionals, providing important information about stuttering and much-needed support for educators, speech-language professionals, other professionals and the children they support and inspire.

SAY creates an environment where kids who stutter can improve their communication skills and, in so doing, gain confidence. It's exciting for all of us at the Stuttering Foundation to see these young people grow.
SAY gives voice to a group of children who are too often not listened to. By validating the spirit of children who have been marginalized by society, SAY provides inspiration to us all.
