New books available on I CAN’s shop: Can I tell you about Stammering?

Does your child or a child you are supporting have a stammer?

If the answer is yes then I CAN recommends Can I tell you about Stammering? – a book from Jessica Kingsley Publishers. This book will offer you an insight into the world of a child who stammers and share some practical ways to help. Written by a parent of a child who stammers, this illustrated book features Harry, a young boy at primary school who has a stammer. Harry takes us through his day and talks about how his stammer affects him in different situations. Harry introduces us to his older brother, Peter, who also has a stammer, as a way of looking at how stammering can affect adolescents too. Harry talks about what he finds difficult and discusses ways everyone around him can help him to reduce his stammer.

There are practical tips for parents, teachers, friends and anyone who is interested in finding out more about how to help children who stammer. These books can also be shared with children aged 7 upward to help them understand their difficulties. At the end of the book there are also really useful links to other organisations and sources of support.

This book may be useful to start potentially difficult conversations with children, either individually or in groups, about what a stammer is, how it feels to have a stammer and what works for different children to help them.
