Teachers of stammering children

Suggestions sheets


It can be difficult to know what to do if a child in your class is stammering. Remember: every child is different and they are the expert on their stammering.

Suggestions sheets

These sheets 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.

Ideally they will be used as a basis for teaching staff and pupils who stammer to discuss specific solutions to particular problems. Involving a speech & language therapist in this discussion too is a very good idea.
