Fluency Trust Courses 2013
The Fluency Trust provides residential fluency courses in activity centres. It believes that the combination of challenging outdoor activities and intensive therapy are complimentary in developing greater confidence and self-esteem, which are vital factors in dealing with the emotional and physical challenges of stammering.
The Swindon Fluency Packs used in running these courses won the Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists Sternberg award for clinical innovation in 2004.
In 2013 the Blockbuster course (10-12 yrs) and Teens Challenge course (13-17 yrs) are again being run together at the same venue, the Skern Lodge Activity Centre in North Devon.
Assessment: 6/7 July 2013
