Event Details

FACT:  People who stammer are subject to public stigma and stereotyping

FACT:  People who stammer often stigmatise themselves

QUESTION: To what extent does speech and language therapy unwittingly perpetuate public and self-stigma?

City Lit has brought together Speech and Language Therapists (SLTs) and people who stammer, to contribute to a ground-breaking one-day conference. These leading voices are engaging directly with the disability activist movement and the principles of the social model of disability in the UK and US. This is a unique opportunity for you to find out more about this radical movement which has significant implications for work with children, young people and adults who stammer.


There will be:

  • Academic debate
  • Intellectual challenge and stimulation
  • Discussion of practical ways SLTs can develop their practice
  • Practical ideas and challenge to engage people who stammer


If you are an SLT or person who stammers, are willing to step out of your comfort zone and would like to explore your position on otherness, difference and disability then come along and join us on 3 November 2016.


Registration from 9.00am

The cost of the conference includes refreshments throughout the day, including lunch and a glass of wine to close.


Reserve your place by booking an Eventbrite ticket. For further details, contact speechtherapy@citylit.ac.uk / 020 7492 2579


This conference is being organised by Sam Simpson of intandem (www.intandem.co.uk) and Carolyn Cheasman and Rachel Everard of City Lit (www.citylit.ac.uk)
