Stammering Plus – when children who stammer also have ASD @thepalincentre
Presented by Gemma Clarke and Marie Halpin, Specialist SLTs. This study day has emerged out of an interest in learning more, and in response to requests from SLTs, about how to support children who stammer (CWS) who also have a diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). The day will provide an overview of core facts and principles for each disorder in order to stimulate discussion about adapting our clinical work for children under 7 (e.g. Palin PCI) and for children aged 8-14 (e.g. Family Communication Skills) to manage the needs of CWS and also have ASD.
