A leading stammering charity welcomed a storyline in the TV documentary Educating Yorkshire that featured stammering pupil Musharaf Asghar.
However, Cherry Hughes from the British Stammering Association said Mushy's tale was "the tip of the iceberg" about the speech disorder:
Stammering is not well understood and sometimes is mimicked and a subject of mockery in society. It is refreshing that Educating Yorkshire has highlighted the impact of having a stammer at school and provides a platform to talk about ways to support young people like Musharaf.
His school experience is just the tip of the iceberg. Much more openness about stammering is needed.
