A speech disorder is a diffculty that somebody has to overcome but it should be for no reason something that will prevent somebody from fulfilling his dreams.Unfortunately , the formal education can not pass this message to people regardless if they stutter or not. As a result, people who stutter remain excluded and consider stuttering as something that torture them from the beginning of their life. Hence, there is a certain challenge for third sector organizations to
come up with effective projects and assist the formal education efforts to address inclusion of people who Stutter.
Rowan Atkinson, King George and Demosthenes are just a few examples that prove that a speech disorder cannot exclude somebody from being active in the society if he/she overcomes the logophobia. According to those ideas and observations , Stutter Live was designed in order to support the society in including people who stutter and to raise the awareness of what stuttering is.
The Stutter Live: Training Course will focus on raising the awareness of what stuttering is as a peculiarity and will deal also with inclusion issues of people who stutter. We aim to increase the effectiveness of this training course by creating a working enviroment based on the characteristic of a real multicultural enviroment.Therefore, the Stutter live project will include both people who stutter and people who dont stutter but are curious to explore this peculiarity.
Finally, this project will give special attention on the crucial role of youth work and in general non-formal education in providing to people who stutter equal opportunities and ensuring their smooth inclusion in their local societies.
** Participants of the Stutter live training course will be able to take part in the following youth exchange ( Thessaloniki, 7-15 November 2020) as group leaders.
