Cultivating Stuttering Pride: Guiding Principles for Speech Language Therapists

Speaker: Voon Pang, BSc Speech Pathology, MNZSTA, CPSP, University of Auckland and Skill Builders Speech Language Therapy (Private Practice)

Date: October 28, 2021

Time: 7:30-8:30pm EDT

Description: Research has shown that stuttering may be often stigmatised as a negative trait (Boyle et al., 2016, St. Louis (2015). However, more recently, the notion of "stuttering pride" and "stuttering well" has gained traction in some community circles (Campbell et al., 2019). The social model of disability and its application to stuttering therapy will be discussed along with tips and strategies to assist speech-language therapists in cultivating "stuttering pride" when working with young people who stutter. As a result of attending this talk, speech-language therapists will walk away with five principles to guide their own clinical practice.
