Supporting a Child who Stammers
At Belfast Stammer Support we believe that educationalists, carers and parents are in a unique position to have a lasting, positive impact on children who stammer.
Learners will gain knowledge and understanding by exploring the history of stammering in society, known causes of stammering and from personal experiences and stories of our own. Throughout the two weeks you will explore techniques designed to give you the tools and confidence to achieve confidence building, understanding of reasonable adjustments that may be required and useful tips to consider when communicating with a child who stammers.
