Emily was referred to the Centre by her school-based speech and language therapist when she started stammering at the age of 6. She has some difficulties with her speech and language skills and receives speech and language therapy support in school to develop these skills. Emily had been stammering for just over one year when she came to the Centre and her parents were becoming more concerned. Emily attended a course of Parent Child Interaction Therapy with her parents (including a session with her brothers and sisters to support them to manage family turn-taking at home). Following this therapy, Emily is no longer stammering at home and her speech and language therapist at school commented that her teachers do not notice her getting stuck on her words anymore. Her parents said that if the stammering returns, they now feel much more confident in knowing how to manage it.
