Happy ISAD 2021!

Spotlights shining on the text: International Stammering Awareness Day 2021

22nd October 2021

It's our favourite time of the year, International Stammering Awareness Day (ISAD)!

Here's a list of things you can do to celebrate the day and help us spread awareness, from signing our petition and getting involved on social media, to joining our live online events and listening to our podcast. Get stuck in and help us make a difference.

Petition

We've written an open letter to tell the media to include people who stammer throughout the year. Sign our change.org petition and share it on social media to help us get greater representation of stammering on TV, radio and film. Watch and share our Not Just One Day video too.

Social Media

  1. We'll be doing an Instagram Live stream from 4pm-5pm. Join us at @stammauk
  2. Connect with us on social to share and retweet our petition and other content. Twitter: @stammer, Instagram: @stammauk, and Facebook.
  3. Talk about your stammer to raise awareness. Record a video and share it: see our ISAD On Social page for more info.

Inclusivity Workshop

One for employers or anyone working in Diversity & Inclusion. Join us at 1:15pm today for a 45-minute lunchtime workshop to make your organisation more inclusive for people who stammer. *Sorry, this event has finished.
