Off topic: International Stammering Awareness Day
Thread poster: John Bowden
Since we are all involved in the communicative activities of translating and interpreting, proz.com colleagues may be interested to know that 22 October is International Stammering Awareness Day. Stammering associations, individuals and groups around the world organise events to mark the day and to spread awareness of the communication problem variously known as stammering, stuttering or dysfluency, which affects approximately 1% of the population (males being 3 times more likely to be affected than females). This can be an enormous problem both in childhood and in adulthood, and can severely affect people's ability to make friendships, succeed in education or find employment.
If you would like to know more about stammering and the research being done into its causes and treatments, the website of the British Stammering Association (http://www.stammering.org) contains a lot of information and links to other national associations.
