Stammering Hurts!

My 20 years as the Education Officer for the British Stammering Association (BSA) has made me aware of just how true that is for all those families affected by stammering. While I do receive enquiries from teachers and therapists the majority of enquirers are parents, devastated by a diagnosis of stammering for which they often blame themselves. Looking into the future they fear for their child’s social and academic development in such a competitive society where communication is seen as a basic skill.
