A Good Week of Stuttering Awareness

Coinciding with the International Stammering Awareness Day this week, I was pleased to see some articles in the UK press about a £500,000 programme launched by the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families Ed Balls, and Michael Palin. The programme will offer information, training and support to teachers to help children who stammer reach their true potential.

Following on from the Bercow Review, the programme has been developed by the Michael Palin Centre for Stammering Children. I've met some of the Speech and Language Therapists from this centre and they are good, so I have high expectations for the programme. Prince Charles is patron for continuing fund raising for the initiative. Pretty high profile stuff.

Let's see how it goes…
