Special Meeting with Inside Edition

January 12, 2011  |  Posted in: Newsletter   |  By:   |   0 Comments

The television program Inside Edition was working on a story related to The King’s Speech and stuttering. Fortunately, they were open to listening to a variety of perspectives regarding the movie, the impact of stuttering, and how attending self-help activities can be helpful. Various members of the Queens Chapter of the National Stuttering Association represented us well. I have total confidence that we as a chapter provided them with GREAT material for them to piece together a GREAT story.

I’d like to thank those of you who were able to participate in this very important display of what it is like to be a part of self-help activities for people who stutter. More research has been coming out showing the benefits self-help participation. This story will be shown to a national audience and has the potential to influence the lives of people who stutter throughout the country. I believe we represented some of what happens at self-help groups for people who stutter. I am confident that other chapters of the National Stuttering Association will agree. Congrats to all of us for taking such a risk to help educate people about stuttering.

I will let you know when I find out about when the episode will air and will post the link to it when it becomes available online.
