What will you get?

All of the modules are pre-recorded presentations around the topic of stammering.


The introduction video (free preview) gives you an insight into the course content and how it is delivered.


Module 1 covers the theory behind stammering. What it means, what causes it, what actually happens to a person when they stammer, who it affects, and more.


In Module 2 I'll show you the red flags to look for with your child who is stammering and when you need to refer to Speech and Language. I'll also highlight the impacts on a person who stammers and how these can be barriers to their learning and development.


Module 2 continues on, showing you the role of a Speech and Language Therapist in supporting a person who stammers and I'll give you insight into some of the tips and resources I use with my patients. I'll spend some time showing you some strategies you can use with the child in your setting who stammers, showing you how to alter for different age groups and needs.


In module 3, I answer some common questions I get asked about stammering. I've also included information on further sources of information and support for you, if you need them.

More about me

Highly Specialist Speech & Language Therapist

Beth Morrant

Hi, I'm Beth.

My role is to train and support education staff who work with children with speech, language and communication needs in schools.

I'm a fun and creative Speech and Language Therapist with lots of ideas to help children develop their communication skills.

I have years and years of experience and working with children and young adults in a range of settings including schools, preschools and clinics. I’ve worked with lots of wonderful practitioners and staff in schools and preschools throughout my career, and I've provided a lot of information, advice, training and support for a variety of Speech and Language topics.

As well as training education staff, I also deliver seminars as a guest lecturer to Speech and Language Therapy Students at the University of Essex. These cover a range of topics, including service provision, speech sounds, stammering, vocabulary and word finding, assessment and intervention.

I work as an Independent Specialist Speech and Language Therapist through my own local service where I see children in schools in Mid Essex and in my clinic. I have a master’s degree in Health and Human Sciences, qualifying as a Speech & Language Therapist in 2009. My undergraduate degree is in Linguistics and Spanish.

I’m registered with the Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists, the Health and Care Professionals Council and the Association of Speech and Language Therapists in Independent Practice.

I'm a mum of 2 and my children have helped me make some of these demonstration videos. As you will see, they each have their own personalities and characteristics.

As a result of my training sessions, dozens of Teachers, Teaching Assistants and Preschool Practitioners have felt empowered to help their students with their speech and language targets.

With The Speech and Language Garden, I hope to give you some valuable ideas and resources to help educate you and support the children you work with. I want to empower Teachers, Assistants and SENCos to deliver effective and fun interventions by providing information, advice, training and demonstrations.
