Last week, Vice President Joe Biden made an appearance on The View and spoke about his experiences stuttering. In an emotional moment, Biden said, “when you stutter, it’s the most debilitating thing, It’s hard to ask ‘will you go to the pr-pr-pr-pr-prom.’ They look at and go ‘this guy must be an idiot.'”
We commend Biden for stepping out and sharing his struggles with fluency. Join us in May to celebrate a sub section of Better Hearing and Speech Month (this May), National Stuttering Awareness Week May 10-16th.
The Eastside Stuttering Support Group will be celebrating on May 19th with a special event at 7pm (more information to come).
