Globally, 27th of October is a day set aside as the World Occupational Therapy Day, to create awareness about the Occupational Therapy Profession and its services to the different individuals of all ages in helping them participate in the things they want and need to do through the therapeutic use of everyday activities (called Occupation).
Every year, stuttering communities and associations around the world get together, put on events and campaign to highlight how certain aspects of society can be difficult for people who stutter; to challenge negative attitudes and discrimination; and to debunk myths that people who stammer are nervous or less intelligent.
ISAD also celebrates the many notable figures who stutter; who have made a mark on the world now and throughout history in the fields of science, politics, philosophy, art, cinema and music.
