Best Practice for Developmental Stuttering: Balancing Evidence and Expertise
Format(s): Journal (Online)
Stuttering is a complex disorder that can lead to social, emotional, and academic difficulties. Clinicians treating children who stutter must consider many factors during assessment and intervention. The articles in this clinical forum describe approaches to evidence-based practice (EBP) that balance available research with clinical expertise, while also considering the needs and desires of the patient and family. Four fluency experts use case studies to describe how they make decisions about stuttering management for a young child as well as an adolescent. Clinicians can use this information to guide how they incorporate the three components of EBP – research evidence, clinical expertise, and client preferences – into their own practice with children who stutter.
Cluttering and Other Fluency Disorders: Differential Diagnosis and Treatment
Format(s): On Demand Webinar
Differential diagnosis of stuttering from cluttering, atypical disfluency, language-disorder-related disfluency, and covert stuttering can be confusing and challenging. This webinar will provide strategies and methods for differential diagnosis of these disorders as well as ideas for developing treatment plans for each.
Stuttering: Treatment Strategies for Affective and Behavioral Roadblocks
Format(s): Streaming Video
Many individuals who stutter can learn fairly quickly, often in just a few sessions, how to produce fluent speech. However, the relapse rate is common, and people who stutter frequently complain of being unable to maintain the desired level of fluency once they leave the clinic. In this course, Lourdes Ramos-Heinrichs will present three strategies that SLPs can use when working with adolescents and adults who stutter to help these clients sustain desired levels of fluency and carry over the fluent speech to everyday speaking situations and when conversing with diverse groups. The course will introduce and discuss the use of clinical self-reports as well as techniques from solution-focused brief therapy and cognitive-behavioral therapy to help address the affective and behavioral challenges that may interfere with clients’ fluency. You’ll walk away with practical strategies to implement in your clinical practice.
Advances in Stuttering Measurement and Treatment for Adults
Format(s): Journal (Online)
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.
