Advances in Stuttering Measurement and Treatment for Adults
Already an ASHA Learning Pass subscriber?
Stuttering is a challenging speech disorder that can have a significant impact on the life of the person who stutters. This journal self-study addresses issues that have been identified in the literature regarding how reliable stuttering measures actually are and how clinicians are trained to make these determinations. In addition, this course explores some newer treatment methods, using virtual reality and an approach that is different from the typical prolonged speech treatment often used. Clinicians will come away with a better understanding of the importance of measuring what they intend to measure, how training impacts measurement, and how new treatment options may assist clients who stutter.
You will be able to:
- summarize the need for reliable measurement of stuttering events and severity
- describe the usefulness of two common stuttering measurement training programs and how training impacts diagnosis and treatment
- explain the benefits of using virtual reality environments for stuttering treatment
- compare and contrast two stuttering treatments that focus on intervals of phonation
