British Stammering Association – National Conference 2016, Manchester

Stammering conference

I have been asked to publicise the BSA National Conference 2016 in Manchester which takes place 2 – 4th September 2016.

The theme is ‘improvement’. Improvements in speech are welcome, but improvement is possible in many more ways, such as communication in general, understanding of stammering, the environment for people who stammer, and our experience of living with stammering.

Booking is open now and a full provisional programme can be found here:

Fancy a productive chat?


Most of our blog readers who are members of the Association of Graduate Careers Advisory Services will be aware of the following discussion list, or will have spotted it being promoted in a recent Arena email newsletter.

But, just in case you missed it, I just wanted to highlight the existence of AGCAS Disability Development Network (DDN) Discussion List.

The AGCAS-DDN discussion list is for AGCAS members with an interest in developing careers materials to support students and graduates with disabilities.

The list is used to share best practice, information and resources. You can also use it to ask your AGCAS colleagues any disability related questions.

Members of the AGCAS Disability Task Group also use the list to communicate updates from the group.

To join the list you just need to email
