HOW OUR TIME HELPS KIDS WHO STUTTER
Effective communication is at the core of the performing arts, and Our Time is the first organization to use this exceptional tool to help kids who stutter overcome their fear of speech. Participants learn how to communicate clearly and powerfully, regardless of their fluency, giving them the confidence to speak in any situation.
Our Time has four core programs that help kids who stutter:
1. Our Time NYC is a year-round program that serves children who stutter, ages 8-18, from the New York Tri-State Area.
2. Camp Our Time is a sleep-away camp that welcomes children who stutter, as well as their young family members and friends, ages 8-18, from across the nation and abroad.
3. Speech Therapy is a year-round program that serves children who stutter, ages 2-18, from the New York Tri-State Area.
4. LLLet Me Finish is a year-round educational, anti-bullying and awareness-building program founded and run by 11-year old Camp Our Time participant Saadiq Wicks.
Leading speech professionals agree that stuttering therapy must be accompanied by social support that nurtures a child’s confidence. Speech therapy along with the type of support provided by Our Time is a winning combination that maximizes a child’s speech goals.
Our Time is proud to present our first ever Mentor Project! Pre-teens, teens, and alums have come together to create songs, stories, skits, plays, poems, you name it! Presented at The Signature Theatre on June 21-23rd.
