I would like to thank all of you for your organisation, dedication, efficiency and focus during the course. It was a great experience for me and my wife as we both think we now have the tools to handle and manage our son's stammering.
The intensive course is remarkable - it is a thought provoking, soul searching two weeks from which parents emerge with the best possible understanding of stammering, how it affects their child and how they can support their child. I emerged from the course feeling that I had been given insights and skills which will stay with me forever.
There is nothing like this locally where a whole group of children who have similar issues can get together and concentrate on not just the stammer but also communication skills. In the whole school of 1500 children no-one else stammers so it is nice for him to be seen in an environment where he is not seen as unusual, he can just get on with dealing with it and learning how to manage it.
I don’t think there is anything else like this in the country. It’s a phenomenal two week intensive course for parents, not just for our son. Its helped us to understand what he goes through and how we can help him.. At the start I thought ‘what are we going to do in two weeks?’ but there is new stuff everyday and it’s a phenomenal support group. The children are all friends too. I would recommend you come on this course if you possibly get this chance.
