Fluency Friday 2023: A program for children and teens who stutter

Joint program held by the University of Cincinnati and Cincinnati Children's

Fluency Friday 2023 will be held on Friday, November 3rd, from 8:45 am-3:45 pm. The theme is “Shoot For Your Dreams,” and former University of Kentucky and NBA player Michael Kidd-Gilchrist is attending the event. Students who stutter in 3rd through 12th grades and their caregivers are invited to participate in the program.

Fluency Friday is a must-attend non-profit event for speech-language pathologists and their clients who stutter. It provides training for speech-language pathology graduate students while giving children/adolescents who stutter the opportunity to interact with others who stutter.

Fluency Friday is a powerful program providing individuals who stutter the opportunity to learn that they are not alone in their journey with stuttering. It allows them to draw support from professionals, graduate students, their families and their peers. Most of all, it is a chance for students to come together, have fun and learn from each other.

Students who stutter participate in group therapy sessions and engage in team-building and confidence-building activities. Parents learn from experts in stuttering and participate in panel discussions. 

Fluency Friday is a collaborative effort between the University of Cincinnati, Cincinnati Children’s Hospital, Hamilton County ESC and Pathways Forward Center for Stuttering.
