  • Our approach for people who stammer

    Most speech therapy in the UK takes place within the NHS, but provision is highly variable. We believe there are advantages to providing speech therapy within an educational environment. Stammering is not an illness and we do not see people who stammer as 'patients' in need of 'treatment'..
  • About stammering

    We see stammering in adults as multi-dimensional, where the speech difficulty is accompanied by thoughts, feelings, emotional responses and avoidance behaviours. Read some key facts here.
  • Aphasia courses

    We offer courses and support for people with aphasia including the communication group.
