NSA Connects – The Language We Use

June 6 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm EDT

What kind of language do you use to describe stuttering? Do you refer to stuttering in general as a disability, disorder, speech impediment or problem? Sometimes we choose words that may convey negativity, be it intentional or unintentional.

How we talk about stuttering to others (and ourselves) can affect how stuttering is perceived and understood by listeners and the general public. What if we used more neutral language and also tried humor? Reframing how we consider stuttering may boost self-confidence and perhaps lessen stigma if viewed via the lens of neutral language. Join Pamela Mertz and Dana Koprowski for a thought provoking conversation on the merits of choosing how we talk about stuttering.

These free sessions allow all participants to learn, inspire, and connect with the larger stuttering community from the safety and comfort of their own home. Each session focuses on a specific theme of interest to those in the community.
