All are welcome to view the screening of the documentary, "My Beautiful Stutter," Wednesday, November 13, at 6:30 pm in Room 308 of the Wendell Johnson Speech and Hearing Center, located just north of the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics on the west side of campus. 

The award-winning documentary, "My Beautiful Stutter" follows five kids who stutter, who after experiencing a lifetime of bullying and stigmatization, meet other children who stutter at an interactive, arts-based program. Over the course of a year, viewers witness the transformation when these young people of wildly different backgrounds experience the revolutionary idea that it's okay to stutter.

The film will be of interest to those who stutter, their families, and future professionals in communication sciences and disorders, as well as those interested in learning skills related to the social aspects of a disability and how to become an ally. 

A panel of clinical and research experts will answer audience questions follow the screening. The event is free, and no rsvp is needed.

Sponsors are the UI Division of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, and the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders.
