Stammering


Stammering

I work with children aged up to 7 years using the following approaches:

  • Lidcombe Therapy Programme for children up to 7 years - this evidence based approach helps decrease and often resolve early stammering.
  • Swindon Fluency Therapy for school age children and teenagers  - this approach uses CBT techniques and fluency shaping work to help develop communication confidence and improve fluency skills. 

We will meet together for an initial assessment that will consist of some language assessment, complete child friendly ratings scales to find out how they feel about their stammering and discussion/case history with you/and your child to find out more information. At this point we can discuss if your child can manage well with some advice/guidance to go away with or if the may benefit from some direct therapy sessions for their stammer. 

Your child's appointment can be at my home-based therapy clinic in Chippenham or you can request a home visit/school or pre-school visit (this is subject to availability and additional travel charges).
