Suggestions sheets

These sheets, which can be printed out as a pack, give you a range of suggestions to cover different aspects of supporting a pupil who stammers.The ideas come from a study to elicit the views of pupils who stammer, their parents, and school staff. However, every pupil will respond in their own way, and the level of support they need may vary across time.
