The Centre provides a comprehensive range of specialist programmes of therapy for children, young people and adults with fluency disorders, as well as offering a national tertiary consultation service to speech and language therapists (SLTs) and families. In addition there is a rolling programme of national and international training for SLTs and other professionals and an expanding research agenda into the nature and treatment of stammering.
