March Meeting Recap
The NC Triad chapter of the National Stuttering Association met on Tuesday March 18th. We were pleased to have 10 people attend the meeting, which was our largest so far! The meeting was attended by 4 people who stutter, 1 family member, 3 SLP students, and the 2 chapter co-leaders. Karrie read the welcoming words. We began by sharing one good event and one struggle that has occurred since the previous meeting. Then we watched the first half of the film Rocket Science. We stopped halfway through the movie so there would be time for discussion. Discussion of the movie included how it related or didn't relate to the lives of the stutterers when they were in high school. One comment was that the movie was relatable to those who stutter and those who don't because high school is an awkward time for everyone. There was also time for the SLP students to ask questions for the people who stutter and the people who stutter to give advice to the future speech therapists. Emily read the closing words to end the meeting. Our next meeting will be on Tuesday April 8th from 7-9pm in the Claxton Room on the ground floor of Elliott University Center on UNCG's campus. We will begin the meeting with our guest speaker from UNCG's Career Services, who will speak on stuttering and the job search. Then we will finish watching the movie Rocket Science. We hope to see many returning faces!
