City Lit provides therapy classes and courses for people who stammer as well as training and professional development courses for Speech and Language Therapists.

Therapy for people who stammer or stutter

We have over 40 years’ experience in providing support for adults who stammer or stutter.

All our Speech Therapy sessions are delivered  in small groups and some are offered online.
