ABOUT STAMMERING

Teachers

If you are a teacher, or work in a classroom, and you have a child or children in your class who stammer you have a chance to really help.  School can be a huge source of support for a child who stammers but it can also be a huge challenge. The more you know about stammering the more you will be able to help the child in your class.
