New guide for universities on stammering

Disclaimer – please read
This page does not apply outside Great Britain.
Last updated 11th August 2021.

STAMMA and STUC have produced a new guide Supporting students who stammer in higher education (pdf, stamma.org).

This guide by STAMMA (stamma.org) and STUC (stuc-uk.org) should be invaluable for universities looking to create an inclusive environment for students who stammer.

It gives many examples of what universities can do to support students, ranging from admission through to teaching, placements, assessments and employment – along with case studies.

The guide will also be of great interest to students who stammer, or people looking to apply to university.

The pdf guide is linked from Supporting students who stammer in higher education (stamma.org).

Legal points

The guide is not primarily meant as a legal document. The Equality Act may – and I think in some cases does – require more than is suggested by the guide.

My pages on universities and FE colleges are University and college, including exams.
