Service description:
The British Stammering Association (BSA) offers support to all whose lives are affected by stammering.

They offer a helpline (020 8880 6590 or email 'info@stammering.org') that you can contact if you'd like to chat to someone, or perhaps just need a bit of telephone practice before making a difficult call. The BDA is the place to turn to when you're looking for answers, or for support when talking is hard.

They have a specialist website for parents of school-age children who stammer: www.stammering.org/expertparent
And one for school staff: www.stammeringineducation.net

You can also contact the BDA’s education officer, Cherry Hughes, through their Education helpline (01606 77374 or email 'education@stammering.org').

While stammering can be lonely, it's also true that mutual support from others who stammer can be very beneficial. The BSA holds the stammering community:

• Through membership of the Association
• Through public events such as open days and a national conference
• Through online communities such as Facebook and Twitter
