“…there are some people who are super comfortable stammering who won't looking for therapy or to change anything about their relationship with their stammering and the way that they talk. For those people who are looking to change that there's a range of support and therapy options, and speech and language therapy is one of those options.”
Kirsten joins us on The Sunflower Conversations podcast to share with us her knowledge. Kirsten is the Programme Lead for Adults at STAMMA and is also a speech and language therapist with lived experience of stammering.
The disruption to speech isn’t a sign of intelligence, the person knows exactly what they want to say. We discuss some of the misconceptions and stigma associated with the neurological condition and ways in which society can support people who stutter by allowing space for communication.
If you are experiencing any issues discussed in this podcast please contact your GP or healthcare practitioner.
