Summary

Camp Shout Out directly and indirectly helps more than 200 young people who stutter powerfully speak for themselves by providing intensive speech therapy during a six-day overnight recreational international camp and a follow-up weekend session. Camp Shout Out provides needed hands-on training for speech-language pathologists and graduate students under the guidance of Board Certified Specialists in Fluency.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Stuttering is a communication disorder occurring in up to 5% of all school age youth often resulting in significant emotional & social consequences, including communication withdrawal, bullying, & shame. A survey by the National Stuttering Assoc. revealed that 80% of youth who stutter (YWS) reported being bullied & 40% of adults had been denied a job or promotion. YWS can become great communicators who exhibit communicative confidence & competence when provided with adequate therapy services.

How will this project solve this problem?

Camp Shout Out provides intensive speech therapy for young people who stutter during a traditional summer camp program. We Build Great Communicators, with special focus on helping children become more Attentive, Assertive, Confident, Effective, and Pro-Active. We help young people who stutter communicate for themselves, build confidence, and develop leadership skills, as they conquer fears such as ordering food, speaking in class, or saying their name to a new friend.

Potential Long Term Impact

This project will build great communicators by providing training and treatment both directly and indirectly to approximately 200 young people who stutter each year. Camp Shout Out will become a model for the training of speech-language pathologists and graduate students as they seek to deepen their knowledge and and understanding when working with young people who stutter. Camp Shout Out Builds Great Communicators. Great Communicators Change the World. Camp Shout Out is changing the world!
