Support for Schools

Children spend a significant part of their lives at school. What happens at school, and a teacher’s ability to efficiently support a child who stammers, can affect the rest of their life. A child’s social environment doesn’t cause stammering, but their fluency can be affected by what is happening around them – positively and negatively – and that is especially true of their time at school. It is very important that teachers understand how to identify students who stammer and know how to support them as best they can.

On this page, we will provide information to help teachers effectively support a child who stammers, and tell you some more about the work we do in schools.

If you would like to speak to a specialist about any issues you have concerning support for a child who stammers, please call our helpline run by the Michael Palin Centre.
