SAY was thrilled to be featured on NBC’s TODAY Show on Wednesday, September 22, 2021! The segment included a wonderful profile of Camp SAY, interviews with SAY’s Vice President & Director of Camp SAY, Travis Robertson, and campers, Kaitlyn and David, highlighting what makes Camp SAY such a special and transformative experience for young people who stutter.
TODAY also presented the world premiere of In the Spotlight and we are excited and grateful that this moving PSA will shine a bright light on stuttering awareness and convey to a broad, national audience that people who stutter know exactly what they want to say – sometimes they just need a little more time to say it!
