Help Me To Speak

I caught an advert for this two-part Channel 4 documentary about stammering, due to be aired on Monday 3rd April. It looks interesting, exploring the social issues around stammering - being bullied at school, career prospects (one stammerer wants to become an actor) and relationships, or the difficulty in forming them.

The treatments involve speech therapy techniques in order to avoid triggers, recognising behaviours that are associated with a stutter and finding release words, that can help snap out of a stammer.
