Supporting Persons who stutter
We tackle a critical issue in the filed of speech therapy
WHAT WE DO
—We Build Networks
Partnering with speech therapists, advocacy organizations, private companies, and universities, we built a framework for the provision of sponsored speech therapy services for persons from financially disadvantaged communities.
We are developing local chapters nationwide, and across the globe, starting at UCLA and expanding to other universities. Our chapters are built and run by students and young professionals, setting many on the path toward becoming speech therapists.
— We Strengthen
We form support groups across the country between our clients, developing valuable connections that are critical for the path toward accepting one’s stutter.
— We Educate
Our local chapters host workshops and conferences raising awareness for stuttering and teaching high school students where to find support (availability of support mechanisms) and how to ask for it (pedagogical training).
— We Provide Care
Our innovative model provides sponsored speech therapy at a drastically reduced rate ($15,000/year -> $1,500/12 sessions) for those with no other viable option.
— We Consult
We provide assistance to all those who wish to learn more about stuttering or speech therapy.
