Day 3 “It’s not just about the stammer”
Stammering therapy is about so much more than the stammer, it’s also about overall communication skills. Between 70-93% of all our communication is nonverbal, so tapping into communication skills in therapy is key! #ISAD2021
Half way through our #PracticeInterview event and, with over 100 participants, it’s wonderful to be hearing plenty of heartwarming feedback from #interviewees & #interviewers. Thanks for sharing! #OKToStutter #ISAD2021 #Allies #RealisingPotential #Interviews
“It’s not a ‘good’ day or a ‘bad’ day it’s just another day”
The way we talk about stammering is important, we need to be thoughtful of talking about it a non-judgemental way, not using words such as, ‘good’, ‘bad’, ‘better’ or ‘worse’, but just encouraging children to talk.
Activia’s new ad narrated by the host of a French podcast about stammering Je Je Je Suis. The ad features stammered speech. Let’s hope this is the start of increased visibility of stammered speech as just another way of speaking (without contributing to negative stereotypes). https://twitter.com/ABCbegaiement/status/1449127127819882504
