Access Activity

Overview / Abstract:

Course Learning Outcomes
After this course, participants will be able to describe the specific contributing factors involved in the treatment of a school-age child who stutters (i.e. cognitive, social, emotional).
After this course, participants will be able to describe the multi-factorial nature of fluency disorders in school-age children (i.e. variables of temperament, environment, physiological, speech and language abilities).
After this course, participants will be able to explain how to develop a differential treatment plan with long-term goals and short-term objectives that is tailored to meet the specific needs/deficits of a school-age child who stutters.

Course Abstract
This course translates recent research findings concerning school-age children who stutter into practical treatment strategies for practicing clinicians. Differential treatment plans understand children who stutter from a holistic perspective and target the improvement of overall communication skills as well as the modification of disfluent speech. This course examines contributing social, emotional, and cognitive factors within the school-age population and discusses how to incorporate these variables into individualized treatment.
