Thank you for your query.

Yes, stammering can be corrected by speech therapy and a little perseverance. It is better to work with a speech therapist in your area.

As you have not mentioned the age of the your son, it is difficult to provide some guidelines. A toddler to 5 year age need not be pushed too much. However, if the child is between 5-10 years of age then do work with the speech therapist.

I am not aware of any speech therapist in your area and hence cannot be of much help there.

I hope I have answered your query to your satisfaction.
