NSA Family Fun Days are one-day events that bring together children and teens who stutter, their families, and speech-language pathologists for a day of learning, support, and growth. SLPs can learn from the children, teens and parents, other experts in the field of stuttering, and the adults who stutter that volunteer their time at these events. Knowledge is enhanced, friendships are made, and everyone goes home feeling more supported and less alone than when they came!
The Family Fun Day is like a “mini NSA Conference” that allows children who stutter and their families to explore their experiences with stuttering in a supportive, helpful environment. For many families, Family Fun Days are the ideal introduction to the NSA, as they allow participants to experience the positive emotions associated with knowing that they are not alone in facing their stuttering – right in their own home town.
Together, speech-language pathologists and the NSA can brighten the world for children who stutter!
