Written for clinicians, speech language pathologists, and students who want a balanced understanding about the complexities of stuttering, Working with People Who Stutter: A Lifespan Approach provides characteristics and theoretical information about people who are afflicted by this condition. A comprehensive resource, this text examines numerous assessments and treatment paradigms for working with preschoolers, school-age children, adolescents, and adults who stutter. This book offers:
- Full coverage of established fluency shaping, stuttering modification, and integrated approaches to stuttering.
- A conceptual model of intervention--The House That Jack Built--and its four stages with multiple therapy activities assisting in understanding "how" to conduct fluency therapy.
- A unique chapter on counseling based on the affective and cognitive components of stuttering.
- A final chapter on cluttering, a complex fluency disorder that can be difficult to treat.
The goal of Working with People Who Stutter: A Lifespan Approach is to provide practical therapy activities based on research findings and clinical experience. This new contribution to the field should increase the competency, confidence, and enjoyment of clinicians working with people who stutter.
