ABOUT STAMMAFEST

STAMMAFEST GLOBAL 2022

This event combines the 14th World Congress of the International Stuttering Association (ISA), held triennially, with STAMMA's own biennial conference.

STAMMAFest Global is being organised by a mixed group of STAMMA staff and volunteers with a wealth of experience in all things related to stammering.   

STAMMA

Founded in 1978, the British Stammering Association, trading as STAMMA, is a registered charity numbers: 1089967 and SCO38866.

 

We exist to create a world that makes space for stammering. Where a stammer is embraced as just a difference. Where no-one judges us on our stammer or the way we choose to deal with it.   We will get there by bringing people together - those who stammer and those who don’t - to propel a movement for change. 

 

We will stand up for and empower those who stammer and challenge discrimination wherever we find it.  We will provide support and information and fight for speech and language therapy services for those who want it.  No matter how you talk, we're here for you. 

 

Join us and help the public understand that stammering is not a sign of being shy, drunk, dishonest, nervous or weak. It’s simply how some of us talk.

ISA

Founded in 1995, the International Stuttering Association (ISA) is a not-for-profit international umbrella association made up primarily of national self-help associations for people who stutter. The ISA seeks to provide a means whereby the voices of people who stutter can be heard at the international level.

Every three years, the ISA works with member associations to hold a world congress to bring people together to meet and share information about stuttering.
