Documenting and Improving What the Public Thinks and Does about Stuttering
Most people hold at least some negative attitudes toward stuttering. From more than 200 samples around the world that utilized the Public Opinion Survey of Human Attributes–Stuttering (POSHA–S), this 1-hour webinar will summarize selected results of what people believe about stuttering or how they would react to a person who stutters, including samples from Portugal. It will then summarize what about 40 samples have informed us about improving public attitudes toward stuttering. Finally, it will summarize what research using another instrument, the Personal Appraisal of Support for Stuttering (PASS-Ad), has indicated on how the nonstuttering majority can be supportive of those who stutter.
Participants who attend the webinar will be able to:
Identify examples of negative stereotyping or stigma regarding stuttering or people who stutter
Describe stuttering attitudes of the general public and of teachers
Describe recent results of attempts to improve public attitudes toward stuttering
Identify evidence-based examples of what to do and what not to do when interacting with people who stutter
