If you have a local speech and language therapist, you can ask for a referral to The Michael Palin Centre, which is a specialist or 'tertiary' centre . Children are referred to us from all over the UK for a charitably-funded consultation service, which offers a specialist assessment, advice and treatment recommendations for each family. Your local speech and language therapist will be invited to attend the appointment too. Charitably funded by Action for Stammering Children.
