Episode #232: Are we doing enough to raise stuttering awareness outside our community? On this episode, I share a number of unfortunate incidents which happened in March – a sexist tote bag offensive to people who stutter sold at a speech pathology conference in California; two of my friends were laughed at a fast food restaurant and doctor’s office and educating about their stuttering; stuttering being used by politicians in Israel to denote lack of intelligence by opponents. Fortunately, my friends and AMBI, the Israeli stuttering association, stood up for themselves to set things right.
These events made me ponder if we as a community, could be doing more to spread stuttering awareness and create behaviour change to fluenters worldwide?
I also talk about the redesign of stutteringiscool.com and my new section featuring Franky Banky comics which I plan on posting every two weeks!
