    Story

    It’s not uncommon for a person who stammers to have not spoken to another stammerer and for them to feel alone, not understood or even feel that they need to hide their stammer from society. A group of stammerers from Cambridge want to change this and have come together to organise CELEBRATION OF STAMMERING & THE ARTS, an event focused on celebrating stammering and people who stammer.

    As part of the event we are collecting donations for the African Stuttering Centre

    Coordinator and ISA board member Dieudonne Nsabimana says: "Students in schools in East Africa are being mistreated for having a stammer, as their teacher does not know enough about it to offer effective support. From being bullied by the teacher to facing a worse punishment, these behaviours are having the opposite effect that someone with a stammer should experience, especially within a learning environment. This must stop. By giving resources for stuttering to teachers. they will acquire the necessary skills to better assist students who stutter in the classroom, students at school will be fully equipped with the knowledge needed to ensure that those in school who have a stammer will be able to flourish academically and personally without intentional or unintentional mistreatment."

    As it is a UK-based event we are also collecting for the good people of STAMMA , the charity that supports people who stammer in the UK. Watch a short video here
