Help on offer

I am a PWS (person who stammers).

I enjoyed your article, Hartlepool vicar gets help for stammer (Mail, October 31), on vicar Andrew Cregg.

One per cent of adults and four per cent of children stammer.

Stuttering does not exempt members of the clergy.

Last year, UK-based The Catholic Herald, published an article about priests and nuns who stutter, entitled Even Moses stuttered.

US-based rabbi Mark Glickman published an article called Reflections of a stuttering rabbi.

A couple of years ago Jewish newspapers in the US ran an article entitled Rabbi Meir Kahane is a role model to people who stutter.

The website of The Stuttering Foundation (www.stammeringhelp.org) gives out many excellent free resources for people of all ages.
