Therapy for children is available from your Local Health Office within the HSE. Adult services may also be available in some areas.
Although most areas have waiting lists, stammering for young children is often prioritised. Therapy can be administered on an individual basis or within a group. The sooner a child is referred for speech and language therapy, the prognosis for success is greater.
As noted above, waiting lists vary in different areas and speaking to your local SLT will give you an indication of when you may be seen for therapy, waiting times may be minimal.
It is also important to make contact with local services so that HSE is aware of a need for therapy. Making contact and requesting therapy leads to a stronger case for improved services throughout the country. It may be difficult to speak up for stammering, but more voices talking about it will give strength to people who stammer of all ages.
