The Charles Lafitte Foundation proudly announces their $10K gift to SAY: The Stuttering Association for the Young.
Over 70 million people stutter on a daily basis, including 5% of all children. Young people who stutter often face unimaginable fear and cruelty from a world that doesn’t understand them. Over time, they may recoil from the world, silencing themselves to hide their stutter, embarrassment and shame. Young people who stutter may also feel incredibly isolated and a…lone, and many face daily ridicule, teasing and bullying.
Since 2001, SAY has offered comprehensive, innovative programs that address the physical, social and emotional impacts of stuttering.
Supporting SAY makes things possible in the life a child who stutters. Transformation occurs when children who stutter develop the self-confidence, lasting friendships and support they need to express themselves fully and follow their dreams. SAY believes that every young person who stutters has a voice that matters and it is a voice that deserves to be heard.
