Documentary on Stuttering to Air Online During Monmouth Group’s October Meeting

The Monmouth County Chapter of the National Stuttering Association will broadcast the award-winning documentary movie “When I Stutter” during its upcoming online monthly meeting at 7 pm on Thursday, October 29.  After viewing the first half of the movie, which reveals the profound emotional impact stuttering has on people, meeting participants will provide feedback and discuss how the film’s lessons relate to their own and their loved ones’ lives. 

The second half of the film will be shown during the chapter’s November meeting. All people who stutter, as well as their family members and friends, speech-language pathologists and other people who have an interest in the subject matter, are invited to join the meeting.

According to the filmmaker John Gomez, “‘When I Stutter’ reveals the humanity that exists within an often mysterious malady. Over the course of nearly five years, 19 people (from all walks of life) shared stories about how stuttering has impacted their lives. From the depths of hopelessness to the heights of redemption, these stories will change how you view stuttering.”

Founded in 1977, the National Stuttering Association is a non-profit organization dedicated to bringing hope and empowerment to adults and children who stutter, their families, and speech professionals through support, education, advocacy, and research.  One of the most important aspects of the group is its network of nearly 200 local chapters across the United States through which more than 2,500 people each month discuss life, stuttering, and how best to cope with their disfluency.  More information on the NSA and stuttering can be found at www.westutter.org.
