Empowering kids who stutter to say what they want to say through community outings and social experiences.
KOPS- Kids Out Promoting Stuttering- is a monthly social and support group for kids, ages 8-13, who stutter. KOPS has a purpose to build friendships, encourage communication, and to normalize the experience of stuttering, always while having a ton of fun.
During the school year, events are typically held on weekends and some school-out days, and during the summer, they may be held on weekends or weekdays. Events will last between 2 and 5 hours, depending on the activities planned. Activities vary month to month, but some past activities have included seasonal parties, pancake breakfasts, ceramic painting, and movie days. Parents are responsible for transportation and for the event cost for their child which ranges between $10-$25 typically.
Events are supervised and run by Sarah Vann. A monthly invitation will be emailed out to parents who have asked for their child to be included on the list serve. If you would like to be included in the monthly event announcement email, please contact Sarah at email@example.com.
