'Stammering; A Practical Guide for Teachers and Other Professionals' (2001) Lena Rustin, Frances Cook, Willie Botterill, Cherry Hughes and Elaine Kelman, London, David Fulton Publishers.

The text of this website has drawn upon this book to a considerable degree and has adopted the book's practice of using 'he' throughout, as more boys than girls stammer. Cherry Hughes, BSA Education Officer, contributed to this book and it may be ordered from the BSA Office: 15 Old Ford Road, London E2 9PJ.

The BSA additionally wishes to acknowledge with thanks the contributions to the filming and recording made by:

Our funders
The British Stammering Association gratefully acknowledges the funding from The Communication Trust (TCT), which made possible this online, updated version of the CD-ROM sent to secondary schools in 2003. The BSA works in partnership with the Trust which is funded by the Department for Education (DfE) and founded by BT Better World, Afasic, the Council for Disabled Children and I CAN.

The Trust has produced the speech, language and communication framework (SCLF) which sets out the skills and knowledge needed by practitioners to support the speech, language and communication development of all children, including those specific to supporting children with SLCN. It can be used by individuals and managers across the children's workforce to audit skills and plan effective professional development in this area. Feedback from SLCF users has been extremely positive and indicated it is being used across the board to encourage collaborative working and to raise awareness of SLCN. The SLCF is available as an interactive online tool at http://www.communicationhelppoint.org.uk/.
