Ella and Wynn, who live in Vancouver, BC, celebrated International Stuttering Awareness Day on October 22nd. They watched a video and talked with their class about stuttering and how to be a good friend/ally to people who stutter. They also made morning announcements at school and ate special cookies shaped like the stuttering awareness ribbon. Ella and Wynn are already planning ways to celebrate and spread the word about stuttering for next year!

Stuttering Superhero

After reading Kim Block's "Adventure of a Stuttering Superhero" with his SLP, Matthew was inspired to make his own comic. Matthew writes "it is okay if you stutter" and with the help of stuttering superheroes, his characters learn stuttering is not something to be embarrassed about. Matthew is 9 years old and lives in Vancouver, BC. Click the image below to download a larger version of his comic.
