We all have times when we do not speak smoothly. We may add "uh" or "you know" to what we say. Or, we may say a sound or word more than once. These things are normal if they happen every once in a while. When it happens a lot, it may be stuttering.

The Grand Rapids Public Museum is partnering with Camp Shout Out to host a special film screening and panel discussion of the award-winning documentary, When I Stutter, this week, Thursday, February 20, 7 to 9 p.m., and Saturday, February 22, 1 to 3 p.m.

This event will bring awareness to stuttering by addressing how the community can be cognizant of the challenges individuals face on a daily basis. Following the screening of When I Stutter, panelists will discuss stuttering, as well as open up the floor to the audience to ask questions.

The event is free but you should make a reservation at the Grand Rapids Public Museum website here!
