Dayton’s National Stuttering Association (NSA) Family Chapter will be hosting Tom Scharstein, an entrepreneur and person who stutters, will be demonstrating his new project, entitled “Team Thunder SPEAKS! The Taiko/Stuttering Project”, a preview for the same titled workshop which will be held later this year at the NSA conference in July in Dallas, Texas.
The kids in attendance will participate in a HANDS-ON experience based on a Japanese drumming/stuttering connection. It will be an experience they won’t forget!
The local event/meeting will be held on Thursday, April 6th at 7pm at the Xenia Community Center, located at 1265 West Second Street in Xenia, Ohio
The meetings of the Dayton Chapter of the National Stuttering Association are open to all those interested in support for stuttering. This includes children and teens who stutter, parents, siblings, other family members, as well as legal guardians, family friends, and Speech Pathologists of children who stutter. They also welcome Speech Language Pathologists and student SLPs to Family Chapter meetings because SLPs and people who stutter and their families can teach each other and support one another.
The National Stuttering Association is a non-profit organization dedicated to bringing hope and empowerment to children and adults who stutter, their families and professionals through support, education advocacy and research.
These objectives of the NSA Family Chapters are as follows:
– Provide a safe, comfortable, supportive environment for young people who stutter (PWS) and their family members.
– Help people who stutter and their families establish connections with other people who stutter and their families.
– Provide a resource for information about stuttering.
– Provide a comfortable place to practice speech techniques and therapies as desired by each individual member.
