Stammering Pride and Prejudice with Sam Simpson (Ep. 693)

Sam Simpson, StutterTalk

Sam Simpson joins Chaya Goldstein to discuss Stammering Pride and Prejudice, a book that explores stuttering from the social model of disability. Sam shares how she learned about the social model in the 1990’s, and how this continues to influence her work as a speech therapist and counselor today.

Sam Simpson is a speech and language therapist with over 25 years experience of working with people who stammer and their families in the public, private, education and voluntary sectors. She is also a person-centered counselor who runs her private practice just outside London. She co-edited the book “Stammering Therapy for the Inside” with Rachel Evrard and Carolyn Cheasman, and most recently co-edited Stammering Pride and Prejudice: Difference not Defect with Patrick Campbell and Chris Constantino.
