A call to all SLTs!

By Jo Hunter, Chair of ASC

Action for Stammering Children (ASC) has commissioned an independent review to help us understand what speech and language therapists (SLTs) across the UK think about the support available for children and young people who stammer and help us inform our growth strategy.

This review goes alongside our Unlock a Child’s Voice appeal.  Our commitment to reach 10,000 children across the UK is a goal and we are very keen to achieve in the next three years.  We hope the independent review, conducted by Peach Consultancy, will help us look into the national support for children and young people who stammer and provide us with the strategy to give the support where it is most needed across the UK.

This is a request to all speech and language therapists (SLTs) to spare 15 minutes of your time to complete a survey about support and services for children and young people who stammer.  We know this is a big ask particularly at such a busy time of year, but your input is so important to us and will help us understand more about the challenges you face.

Please forward, Tweet and Facebook this blog with the link to the survey and help us reach as many SLTs as we possibly can.  Their say is vital to ASC.

Thank you
