Event description

Description

We are pleased to be a Partner of The Stammerers Through University Campaign (or ‘STUC’ - emphasising the possible feeling of being trapped by having a disability).

STUC aims to go into Universities as a way for those who are affected by stammering to attend a focus group/workshop in a non-judgemental, supportive environment.

We hope that the event will be attended by a combination of students, lecturers, disability staff and anyone with an interest in stammering. We aim to discuss difficulties and examine issues resulting in possible resolutions.

Examples of issues raised in the first focus group/workshop can include:


o What can be done to help stammerers during their First Year introduction

o Ways in which awareness of stammering within the University can be raised

o How the Students' Union can become involved

o How aspects of University could be altered to ease the impact, e.g. assessment.

o How current students, staff and/or alumni have overcome/are overcoming this obstacle.


A follow up seminar will be held a few months later in the hope that it will achieve the aims for which STUC strives.

As there are limited spaces, please pre-book to avoid disapointment. Enquiries can be directed to Kirstie Abrahams disab@essex.ac.uk Please note that this event is for University of Essex staff and students only.
