Description

STAMMERING EDUCATION & AWARENESS OPEN DAY - ASHFORD

An estimated 5% of children and 1% of adults have a stammer. This open day is a chance for anyone with an interest in stammering to find out more from some expert speakers in their field.
Come along and meet others who stammer, parents of stammering children, speech therapists and teachers in a friendly and welcoming atmosphere. Refreshments and a light lunch.

Feel free to tweet about the event using the hashtag #BSAOpenDay @stammer
