Speaking SupportSupport Group for Those Who Stutter
Support for People Who Stutter
This project is a little bigger than just the website. The intent of this project is to create a safe space for people to share their experiences with stuttering. The support group meets every two weeks and it offers others a chance to talk, listen, and learn.
Since I live in a medium-sized, isolated city, there are some big-city services we are sorely lacking. Many of these are community-based, one such need being support for those who stutter. Seeing this deficiency, I set out to do something about it.
Our group meets every two weeks and the aim is to allow people who stutter a place to feel comfortable and share their experience. Stuttering, like any other outwardly-obvious issue, can create all sorts of nasty social and emotional side-effects, and this group is one small way people who stutter can feel a little less isolation and anxiety.
