Do you believe that you should receive compensation because a professional, who should know better, gave the wrong advice when you asked about your child's stammer?
Every year hundreds of parents are faced with a child who starts to stammer. Many ask advice from Doctors, health visitors, teachers, nursery nurses.
Many are good and give the correct advice to refer every child to speech and language Therapy immediately, as direct by The British Stammering Association and the Michael Palin Centre.
However, some professionals continue to give out inappropriate and outdated advice;
Popular phrases include;
- Don't worry he will grow out of it
- He'll be fine
- Its just a phase
If you asked a professional for advice and they re-assured you in a way that stopped you getting immediate stammering therapy for your child, we at The Stammering Revolution believe that you should receive some compensation for this negligence.
