International Stuttering Awareness Day (ISAD) is on October 22nd and the International Stuttering Association’s ISAD 2020 Online Conference is now live!
The theme for this year’s online conference is ‘Journey of words: resilience and bouncing back’, so we decided to ask our members what resilience meant to them, and take a look at how Stamily could help to embolden and empower people who stutter by sharing individual stories of resilience and learning from the experiences of one another.
Read our paper here and leave a comment to let us know about your experiences of resilience in regards to stuttering.
