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.

Stuttering Intervention for Children: Modifications to Two Common Programs
Format(s): Journal (Online)
Stuttering is a particularly challenging speech disorder that can have a significant impact on a child’s self-esteem, social interactions, and academic success. Many treatment programs and techniques exist to address stuttering, and clinicians are always looking for new and better ways to help children with this disorder. This journal self-study explores the use of two specific programs – the Lidcombe and Camperdown programs – in modified situations. Articles examine the Lidcombe Program, designed for younger (preschool and some school-age) children, and discuss how clinicians can adapt the program for use in groups and for webcam delivery. A third article explores the factors that may best predict treatment time and long-term outcomes. The Camperdown Program, a treatment more often used for teens, is studied as a telehealth application to determine outcomes and child and parent reactions. SLPs working with children who stutter will benefit from a better understanding of how these programs work and how they can be adapted for more resource-efficient treatment.
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.

Preschool Stuttering Therapy: A Practical Approach
Format(s): On Demand Webinar
Speech-language pathologists often face uncertainty about whether, when, and how to treat young children who may be showing signs of early stuttering. This webinar is designed to reduce that uncertainty by presenting strategies for evaluating the risk factors that may contribute to the development of chronic stuttering. The program describes key features of common treatment approaches that support the development of appropriate communication attitudes and involve changes to the communication environment as well as modifications to the preschooler’s speech production and communication abilities. The course helps clinicians evaluate treatment outcomes so they can apply the principles of evidence-based practice in helping young children overcome early stuttering.
