Sidewalks and Intersections: Understanding Different Paths of People Who Stutter

Sidewalks and Intersections: Understanding Different Paths of People Who Stutter

Research has demonstrated that stuttering can have an adverse impact on a person’s quality of life. For example, people who stutter often report reduced well-being, resulting from factors like fear and avoidance of introducing oneself, using the telephone, and speaking to authority figures. Moreover, stuttering can affect a person’s identity and life experience in different ways, based on factors such as family support, cultural upbringing, and additional stigmas. Through both research and the author’s personal journey as a person who stutters, this presentation will discuss factors that influence identities, intersectionality of multiple identities, and the clinical relevance of understanding different narratives of people who stutter.
