The Laughter Lab
Canadian Stuttering Association Conference 2021
Sunday, November 14, 2:45pm EST
In this participatory workshop, people who stutter will be inspired to let go and find their voice through improv games.
Joining Robert will be presenters Dan Dumsha and Wendy Duke, who each bring a unique perspective around stuttering and improv. For 30 minutes, we will do a warm up and three games involving spontaneity, humour and uninhibited speech as we embrace ourselves and who we are and let go of fears around talking.
By the end of the workshop, learners will:
- Be shown how this approach to stuttering is consistent with current thinking on accepting diversity, as opposed to promoting “ableism” in treatment.
- Learn improv games that they can incorporate into their daily interactions and/or utilize in treatment.
- Become more playful in their speech and accepting of mistakes.
