Description - Stammering by Lena Rustin

This volume provides essential information and guidance about stammering for those working in educational settings. The experienced team of authors demonstrate: how early intervention is essential if children who stammer are to have the best chance of recovery; the practical strategies that can help with children's oral participation in class, particularly in the light of recent innovations such as the literacy hour and national numeracy strategy; the ways in which teachers can address the educational and social implications of stammering, and reverse the risk of underachieving if these children become isolated, anxious, withdrawn or disruptive; how to influence the climate in schools so that children who stammer are better understood and can be helped to their full potential; how to prepare pupils for exams, particularly in secondary schools where they may be taking oral examinations. Throughout the text, reference is made to new government initiatives where appropriate, and each chapter includes case studies, practical tasks and activities.
