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.
