Name: Ianto Roberts
Age: 19
Year of the Fix: 2015
Location: Mold, Flintshire
Campaign: To show others with a speech impediment that progress is possible

I have a speech impediment, which can make it hard for me to communicate and get my words out quickly.

Parts of daily life used to be a serious challenge for me. I was afraid of social interactions and routine tasks such as getting the bus, because I’d have to ask for a ticket.

After attending courses to help me improve my speech, my self-confidence drastically improved.

Now, I want to offer encouragement to others with speech disorders by showing that things can get better.

I’ve overcome personal obstacles to get to where I am now and I know that others can do the same.

If you have communication difficulties, you should never give up hope and always stay positive.
