We celebrated SAYs 15th Anniversary in 2016

Transforming the Lives of Young People Who Stutter

SAY: The Stuttering Association for the Young


Since 2001, SAY has offered comprehensive and innovative programs that address  the physical, social and emotional impact of stuttering. We began by offering a transformative performing arts after-school & weekend program. In 2008, we established Camp SAY, and in 2011, Speech Therapy was added, to address a crucial need voiced by so many parents, and children.

Seeing a child give up on communicating is a tragedy that we don’t accept at SAY, so in addition to evolving and growing these programs throughout our first 15 years,   SAY has continued to innovate – launching new programs, including SAY: Storytellers & Digital Storytelling – to provide even more opportunities for every voice to be heard!

We’ve enjoyed incredible growth at SAY!
