Apologies if this is a bit out of the ordinary for this forum but I have pretty much run out of ideas as to where to turn to next for help. I have a 9 year old son who has had a mild stammer ever since he started to speak, he has days when it is better or worse but it is always there and it makes things more difficult for him than they need to be. We took him to a speech therapist as soon as it became obvious he had a problem but to be honest she was next to useless and could only suggest all the common sense things we were obviously already trying, and despite taking him to her every week for several months there was no improvement, this was a couple of years ago and currently he getting no professional help. I am hoping that someone in here has either experience of a similar issue or can recommend some technique or routine that might help him, I know that there are self help programmes such as "The McGuire Programme" which can have good results and I have checked out the different organisation websites but my son is too young to attend these yet and I don't want to sit about waiting when I might be able to get him so constructive help now. Thanks in advance.
