'When I Stutter' to screen Jan. 25 and 28 at the Pickford

The College of Humanities and Social Sciences, the National Student Speech-Language-Hearing Association, the Department of Communication Sciences & Disorders, the Department of Psychology, and the Department of English are co-hosting two screenings of "When I Stutter" at The Pickford Film Center in downtown Bellingham.

When I Stutter posterWHEN I STUTTER: Thursday, Jan. 25 at 6:30 p.m.; and Sunday, Jan. 28 at Noon at the Pickford

"When I Stutter" is a documentary that reveals the humanity that exists within an often-mysterious malady. Over the course of 4.5 years, 19 people shared stories about how stuttering has impacted their lives. These stories run the gamut of human emotion… Some are dark, some are funny and others are triumphant! Additionally, there are “educational vignettes” interspersed throughout the documentary that help illuminate some of the mysteries and questions that surround stuttering.

A vital storyline in this film follows a young man on his journey through stuttering therapy. The relationship that he forms with the speech pathologist and the progress that he makes is truly heartwarming. It demonstrates the wonder and beauty that can occur when one meets the right person at the right stage in life!

This event will be co-Sponsored by the College of Humanities and Social Sciences, the National Student Speech-Language-Hearing Association, the Department of Communication Sciences & Disorders, the Department of Psychology, and the Department of English.
