Helping Increase Awareness of Stuttering and Cluttering

By May 1, 2013September 17th, 2020Community Events, Stuttering

Nancy Barcal and Mike Molino had a rewarding and heartwarming day on April 20! They provided information about stuttering and cluttering on behalf of the National Stuttering Association, Sacramento-Roseville chapter, to more than 600 people at the Access to Care Fair at Bayside Church in Granite Bay. A Touch of Understanding (ATOU), a Granite Bay nonprofit, hosted this event — the eighth annual — to provide the community with information, resources and services for people with special needs. Through its Youth Force, ATOU has presented active disability awareness programs to more than 57,000 Northern California students in the past 17 years.

 

 

Both stuttering and cluttering affect a person’s speech fluency. There are many variations of stuttering, including speech interruptions. A person who clutters usually presents rapid, irregular speech often accompanied by inappropriate pausing and inflection. More than 3 million Americans — 20,000 in the Sacramento area — have a stuttering disorder. You can find helpful positive information about stuttering, cluttering and other speech issues at this website, the local Stuttering Association chapter’s website, www.sactovalleyspeech.org, or by calling Granite Bay Speech at 916-797-3307.
