Upcoming Event Helps Children Who Stutter

Children who stutter have a new place to turn for help with an event called “Fluency Friday”.  The intensive one-day workshop has been scheduled for February 20. It will allow students to participate in individual and group therapy. Presentations by local and national experts in the field of stuttering will also be on hand for parents.

12-year-old Ian Ellis has participated in the program in the past and spoke with Local 12 about how “Fluency Friday” has made a difference in his life.

Clinical Director Irv Wollman with the Division of Speech-Language Pathology also talked with WCPO.com about how “Fluency Friday” will allow children to connect with others experiencing the same problems.

Fluency Friday will be hosted at Vineyard Community Church (Springdale) from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m on Feb. 20. Registration ends Feb. 1.

    This one-day workshop gives kids who stutter the chance to meet and be with other kids who stutter! Parents also get to share their experiences, ask questions, and gather information to better support their children growing up with stuttering! Thank you to Diane Games, SLP who started this workshop over 10 years ago! She has helped support numerous children and families who live with the challenge of stuttering! We are thankful to be able to keep this going strong with the collaborative efforts of the University of Cincinnati, Hamilton County Educational Services Center, and Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center Division of Speech Pathology!
