Christine speaks out about stammering

by Vivienne Fitzroy, RCSLT

Christine Birney, one of our participants in the My Journey My Voice exhibition has been out and about raising awareness about stammering with the help of her Speech and Language Therapist, Mary Coulter. They manned an information stand in their local hospital as part of International Stammering Awareness Day 2015 - well done ladies!

Christine has also talked openly about how her communication disability has affected her life and reflected upon her involvement in My Journey My Voice in a recent article for the British Stammering Association.

Did I ever think that I’d be in Parliament Buildings, Stormont, Belfast? Not a hope, but i was!
