The teacher helping young people who stammer find their voice

Abed Ahmed is a teacher from Birmingham. He began to stammer from the age of four, and struggled at school due to lack of support. At age 19, he started working with a speech and language therapist, and his confidence flourished. He's now a teacher at his former secondary school, and has set up a Stammer Support Group to empower today's students who have a speech impediment, and to help them to find their own voice.
