Battling the Elements

Stammer Awareness Day

To raise awareness and show children how it would feel like to have a stammer, the Stems played some powerful games in class that give them insight to what it would be like living with a stammer.

“It was annoying, I had to stop talking and I just wanted to talk.” – MS

“I was a bit annoyed, it was rude, I wish she listened.” NM 

“I felt sad because you talked over me and I didn’t like it.” RL

Stems agreed that if someone has a stammer they need to show patience when they speak, not to finish their sentences and make sure they are paying attention.
