Speech therapy

Speech & Language Therapy

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 50 years’ experience in providing support for adults who stammer or stutter. Rather than having traditional treatment for stammering, you can enrol as a student on a course at our London-based centre of excellence. Our team of experienced Speech Therapists run a broad range of classes and workshops which can help you overcome stammering.

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

For more information about our live online courses, please see our guide to online learning.
