Speech & Language
Stammering refers to when words or sounds become stuck or are repeated. It is not always possible to identify whether or not a child will ‘overcome’ their stammer or whether this will become part of who they are and how they communicate. On this pathway, a speech and language therapist will work with the child to increase their knowledge of stammering and will help them to begin to accept their stammer in order to reduce any negative thought cycles. The therapist will also introduce some helpful tips which the child can use to help manage their stammer. The aim of the course is to help children to become confident and effective communicators.
Length of treatment
12 sessions usually taking place weekly.
