This past Tuesday, November 13th, the NC Triad chapter of the National Stuttering Association held its third meeting. Seven people (2 chapter leaders, 3 people who stutter, 1 family member, and 1 speech-language pathology student) were in attendance. We were excited to see four new faces at this meeting! After Emily read the welcoming words, we had a round of introductions to get to know everyone. Then, we watched the MTV documentary "True Life: I Stutter" and discussed reactions to the film. One person had been through the stuttering therapy program featured in the film and talked about how his experience compared. This lead to a discussion about various stuttering therapy experiences from both the person who stutters' point of view and the speech-language pathologist's point of view. Then, the choice of restaurant for next month's holiday social was debated. This social will take the place of our regular monthly meeting for December. Karrie read the closing words to end the meeting. Next month we will meet on Tuesday December 11th. As soon as the location is chosen, it will be posted on this website.

Tomorrow (Sunday November 4th) at 2pm MTV will air a new episode for its True Life documentary series titled "I Stutter." The documentary follows three young adults who stutter. Footage for this documentary was taped at the national NSA convention in Atlanta this summer. We may be discussing this episode at an upcoming support group meeting.
