In this SIG 4 activity, authors explore ways to provide experiential learning to graduate students enrolled in stuttering courses (Palasik, Hughes, & Ellis) and discuss the clinical experiences of school-based speech-language pathologists related to stuttering (Panico, Daniels, Yarzebinski, & Hughes), strategies for teachers to support children who stutter (Cozart & Wilson), and ways to interrupt the narrative of ableism that surrounds the treatment of stuttering (Gerlach-Houck & Constantino). Each of these articles provides a unique perspective on ways that professionals can seek to create a more supportive environment for our clients who stutter by changing the foundations of the way we teach preservice clinicians, support our school-based colleagues, and address the narrative of ableism that pervades our culture.

Learning Outcomes
You will be able to:

  • describe which fluency-enhancing techniques graduate students felt more comfortable, less anxious, and more positive toward
  • provide examples of clinical situations that school-based clinicians indicated they were least comfortable providing services in
  • list the three items rated most helpful for teachers to do to support students who stutter
  • provide examples of practices that interrupt ableism in stuttering therapy and research

Assessment Type
Self-assessment—Think about what you learned and report on the Completion Form how you will use your new knowledge.
