Action for Stammering Children
Helpline: 020 3316 8100
ASC is a UK registered charity which supports expert therapy that transforms the lives of children who stammer. We do this primarily by commissioning specialist services from the Michael Palin Centre for Stammering Children in London. Stammering crosses all races, cultures, religions and social groupings, conceals intellectual ability, affects educational choices and achievement, results in impaired communication skills and frequently becomes a focus for teasing and bullying. In severe cases, it may play a significant part in a young person's ability to achieve their potential and to make a full contribution to society as an adult.
