For parents

Under 5's

As a young child learns to talk, it's quite common for them to go through a phase of stammering which often resolves itself. If you're at all concerned, or if your child appears concerned, it's best to get some help. Here you'll find information and advice on how you can go about this. Remember, you can also give our helpline a ring on 020 8880 6590.
