What causes stammering? Who is affected by it? Will my child grow out of it? Is there a cure? Why do more men than women stammer? How come I stammer more in some situations than others? What’s the best type of therapy? Why don’t people stammer when they sing? 

These are just a few questions which have been perplexing researchers, people who stammer and speech & language therapists the world over. We do know a lot more than we did, but stammering is complicated and the need for research is on-going. Our Research Panel is going to be answering the above questions over the coming months.
