Stammering Network congratulate ITV on raising awareness of stammering but highlights that there are a range of therapies available
The Stammering Network, which consists of organisations from across the voluntary and public sector who work to help those people in the UK who stammer including Action for Stammering Children, British Stammering Association, Employers Stammering Network, Michael Palin Centre, City Lit and the National CEN in Disorders of Fluency are delighted that ITV have chosen to raise awareness of Stammering in School for Stammerers. It’s through programmes like this that the general public can truly understand the impact that stammering has on people’s lives.
A spokesperson from the Stammering Network commented, “The Stammering Network would like to congratulate ITV for raising awareness of stammering. Whilst ‘School for Stammerers’ highlights the McGuire programme, it’s important that people are made aware that there are other effective therapies available, both on/within the NHS and independently, for adults and children. Evidence shows that there is no one size that fits all. By contacting the members of the Stammering Network directly they will be able to discuss the different therapies available.”
