This was our first Friends convention. My husband and I attended with our 19 year-old son who stutters. Having been involved with my son and his therapy for many years I foolishly thought to myself, what can I learn? Boy, was I wrong.

Dr. Rabinowitz’s presentation was amazing. The emotion that was evident when he spoke of his childhood moved me to tears; his success and passion for his work was inspiring. From the moment we arrived, our son was off with his peers. It was a joy to see him so full of confidence and at ease. The courage of all of the speakers was incredible. What truly struck me was how nice everyone was.

I have never been among a group of people where everyone (parents, kids, teens, professionals) was so kind, caring, accepting and thoughtful.
