Keisuke Saito:

Starting the stuttering self-help group (GENYUKAI) activities from 2010. I am doing activities to spread GENYUKAI all over Japan. In addition, I am also a member of the “Joint World Congress in JAPAN 2018” held this summer. My belief is “Spread the circle of stuttering all over Japan!” Currently, I am a board director of “Japan Stuttering Genyukai Association”, “Japan Society of Stuttering and Other Fluency Disorders”, “International Stuttering Association”.

  1. What a great and unique way to spread awareness of stuttering to the people in your community! I think it is great that you chose to do this in the busy streets of your town. This will help reach more people. Also the fact that you have all ages involved really provide a sense of support and community across the lifespan! It is helpful that at the end of your flyer you posted different awareness activities and resources for individuals who may stutter.

  2. Tissues! What a great idea! And how wonderful to see such young people educating people about stuttering. That’s really promising for the future of your stuttering association. Happy ISAD and keep talking.
