Times for Irish Stammering Association’s breakout sessions at National Stammering Awareness Day on October 18th have been announced.
Breakout sessions will run throughout the day for parents and young people:
– Parents’ Support Network with speech and language therapists (12.20 p.m.)
– ISAYiT! drama project with Gaiety School of Acting for kids and teens who stammer (11 a.m.)
– Teenage talk session (2.40 p.m.)
The theme for the National Stammering Awareness Day is “We speak with one voice!” The day will feature over a dozen speakers from Ireland, UK, USA, and Sweden talking about their experiences of stammering and giving support and useful ideas on how people can reduce the negative impact that stammering can have.
Irish Stammering Association Chairman Veronica Lynch says “National Stammering Awareness Day provides an opportunity to meet other people who stammer, hear and share experiences and learn that stammering does not have to hold you back. You may have never done anything about stammering before, but it’s never too late or too early to start.”
National Stammering Awareness day is free to attend and all are welcome… people who stutter, family members, friends, and professionals who work with stuttering.
A full schedule can be found on http://www.nsad.ie later this week.

People who stammer are individuals. We all have our own thoughts about stammering, and we have all had our own unique experiences of being a person who stammers.
