There are specific moments in life that involve added stress and uncertainty, having an affect on a young person’s stammer. They often involve major changes, or “transitions” from one step in life to the next. These transition periods can be:
- Primary to Secondary School
- Secondary School to College/University
- Starting the World of Work
‘Transitions’ is a project developed with the help of the ASC Youth Panel and is aimed at helping young people to reach their potential. We want to help them build the confidence to transition into the next stage of their education and to not be held back by their stammer. Similar to our ‘Stambassadors’ project, Transitions connects people from higher education with young people who stammer, sharing their stories and inspiring young people to think big when they are considering their next steps in their studies and initial journey into work.
Please watch our videos below to hear from young people talking about their experience with a stammer at university.
