Story

“We are all human beings who want to be heard, and that means letting everyone have as much time as they need to speak...” Taro

“This is the best documentary about stuttering so far... Ultimately it is a movie about our need for acceptance and the power of unconditional love to heal the soul... This film can replace text books for Speech Pathology students and professionals as well as providing support and hope for parents and youngsters struggling with this physical challenge...” Phil Schneider, EDD, CCC-SLP, BRFS, Founder and  & CO-Director at Schneider Speech


About this Event

My Beautiful Stutter follows five kids who stutter, ages 9 to 18, from all over the United States and all walks of life, who, after experiencing a lifetime of bullying and stigmatization, meet other children who stutter at an interactive arts-based program, The Stuttering Association for the Young, based in New York City. Their journey to SAY find some close to suicide, others withdrawn and fearful, exhausted and defeated from failed fluency training, societal pressures to not stutter or the decision to remain silent. Over the course of a year we witness first hand the incredible transformation that happens when these young people of wildly different backgrounds experience for the first time the revolutionary idea at the heart of SAY: that it's okay to stutter.

Executive Producers: Paul Rudd, George Springer, Patrick James Lynch. Producers: Ryan Gielen, Michael Alden. Director: Ryan Gielen. Writer: Steven Sander.
