Hi Everyone! I would like to thank everyone who attended our December Meeting on Monday 12/14/15. It was a great meeting with new attendees who were anxious to share their questions and thoughts about the NSA and meetings in general. It was a great reminder to remember why we appreciate organizations like the NSA and attend meetings to remember we are not alone. The Queens Chapter will not be having a meeting in January because of the New Year. We will see you again in February. The date will be announced shortly so stay tuned! Happy Holidays and Happy New Year to you and your family. Nina

Happy November Everyone! On Monday, November 2nd, the Queens Chapter of the NSA met with 4 new attendees! If you are reading this and would like to attend a meeting, please feel free to do so. The new attendees shared that they are overjoyed there is a support group to advocate for People Who Stutter and they can't wait until our next meeting. Join Us! Our next new attendee could be you! We began our meeting with optional introductions where all attendees agreed that they appreciate NSA meetings because they are not judged and can speak and stutter freely and openly. One attendee summed it up perfectly by saying sometimes, we as persons who stutter, are afraid to open our hearts and feelings to other people when advertising our stuttering. We are afraid of the fear of being made fun of or not understood. Advertising can be intimidating for PWS but we as a community have to advocate for ourselves if we want to have our voices heard. As the meeting continued, we discussed possible treatment options for stuttering and many shared that Speech Therapy can work but often times, in a noisy lunch room or ...

Hi Everyone, With Fall in full swing, the Queens Chapter of the NSA met to discuss the similarities we face as persons who stutter. The meeting got off to a great start, with three new attendees as we shared our optional introductions. The attendees shared how NSA meetings offer them an opportunity to be excited to talk about stuttering without the fear of puzzled faces and awkward glances. One attendee shared that good speech does not have to be fluent speech. Often times, we put too much pressure on ourselves and overthink situations when most times, our listener is not as impacted by our speech as we think they are. We discussed situations where our stuttering has held us back and one attendee shared that she wished she would have volunteered more in high school during English class rather than telling her teacher she was having a "hard day" and she couldn't read aloud. It is important to not give power to our stuttering and stuttering situations. We should try to put ourselves in situations where even though it may difficult at times, we can prove to ourselves we are capable and can prevail! We also discussed that stuttering in ...
