An online workshop for speech & language therapists (SLTs).
At STAMMA we know that it's natural for families to feel anxious about stammering, particularly when their child first starts to stammer. Parents may come to speech & language therapy wanting to 'fix' or 'cure' their child's stammer and see fluency as the only goal. How can we change that mindset and help families mind less about stammering?
This 90-minute workshop for SLTs builds on our Minding Less about Stammering workshops for parents/guardians, which aim to support families in feeling more comfortable about stammering and in their role as parents in supporting the wellbeing of their child.
It will touch on similar concepts but will be tailored towards:
- Helping families to be more aware of their thoughts and language around stammering
- How to balance supporting parents with their feelings as well as working towards acceptance
- How to support parents who are focused on aiming for fluency and other potentially difficult conversations.
This free workshop is open to all speech & language therapists, however it may be more suited to newly qualified therapists and those with less experience in working with people who stammer.
