What is the ASC Youth Panel?
The ASC Youth Panel is a collection of bright young stammerers from across the country with the aim of raising awareness of stammering and celebrating differences. We want to create a society where having a stammer isn’t a barrier to success for young people.
The Youth Panel aim to use the support and influence of the education system to further project our voice and presence, and begin our mission to create safer, more natural spaces for young people who stammer.
With your help we can reach wider audiences, resulting in greater change!
“Stammering is a disorder of fluency that is characterised by various behaviours that interfere with the forward flow of speech.”
Action for Stammering Children (ASC) is a UK charity that aims for a society where children and young people who stammer have the same opportunities and quality of life as their peers. Our goal is to ensure that every child and young person across the UK who stammers has access to effective services and support to help them meet the challenges created by their stammer.
Based in The Michael Palin Centre for Stammering Children, the charity is a strong supporter, helping to fund specialist assessment and therapies for children and young people that stammer, and relies heavily on donations.

“Stammering is more common in boys than girls. It also tends to persist into adulthood more often in boys than in girls”
