Start with Success:
A child who stutters is moving through assessment and will soon be on your workload. Where do you start in order to set up the most effective long-term outcomes for this child? This question can seem unanswerable to even the most seasoned clinician. Good news! It has an answer, and you already have much of what you need (and can get what you don’t) to begin a positive therapy experience for school-age children who stutters.

Have you met all the strategies?
Have you ever felt that you don’t know all you need to know about the speech handing strategies for working with those who stutter? Join the club! Many SLPs report feeling the same way. Join us for an overview, demonstration, and role-play opportunities of EBP strategies to make certain you have what it takes to tackle this aspect of the overall framework of stuttering therapy! Resources for further study and support will be provided.
