The service offers:
Six personalised one-hour stammering therapy sessions via telemedicine.
Individualised notes and action plans to support your progress between appointments.
Assessment at first appointment and end of therapy to measure impact.
Other benefits include, if appropriate, putting clients in touch with other clients with a stammer to provide ongoing support to one another.
