What are the words we use to describe stuttering? Do we intentionally or unintentionally choose words that convey negativity? Do we use words like “problem, defect, or disorder” when we describe our stuttering? When we do that, we run the risk of negatively influencing our feelings about stuttering. Are PWS and SLPs on the same page when talking about stuttering? Do we cling to the “way we’ve always done things” or are we looking ahead to make it easier to live with stuttering?
We had a similar session about the language we use last June, and it was so popular, we wanted to revisit this conversation.
Join us for an interactive session on how we can choose to be more mindful of how we talk about stuttering. This session will be moderated by Pamela Mertz, PWS and long time NSA member, along with Mike Molino, PWS and CCC-SLP, and Ezra Horak, PWS and founder of Stutterology.
