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.

Walk Safer in NYC!

May 21, 2015  |   Blog,Events   |   0 Comments

Happy Memorial Day Weekend Everyone! I just wanted to share an interesting, informative website regarding accidents in the city with all of you that was brought to my attention and will help you "walk safer in NYC!" About Us: Accident Map was designed to combat the speed limit reduction in NYC, to keep residents safe. By using the map, users are able to filter the heat map to display accidents based upon various types- such as age, gender, time of day, type of accident, etc. You can also click on the individual boroughs to see the most dangerous intersections by NYC borough. The data is current, and you can see the change in the number of accidents/most dangerous areas from the past few years. Also presented is the number of accidents that have been reduced since the speed limit reduction.  It’s an excellent tool for pedestrians, motorists, cyclists, parents, students, and basically about anyone who visits NYC. There is nothing out there with this much data and information. Please visit www.walksaferNYC.com    Please feel free to let me know if you have any questions. Thank You, Nina
