Evaluating and Treating Children Who Exhibit Concomitant Stuttering and Speech Sound Disorders
The program was originally aired as part of the “Case Studies in Fluency Disorders” online conference (October 31-November 12, 2012).
Children (age 3–12) who stutter appear to be at a higher risk of exhibiting speech sound disorders, including disorders of articulation and phonology. The presence of a second communication disorder (particularly a speech sound difficulty) has significant consequences for both evaluating and treating these children. In this presentation, we'll use a generic case study to highlight issues affecting children who exhibit both stuttering and speech sound disorders, addressing diagnostic procedures and comprehensive treatment.
You will be able to:
- describe the assessment procedure for children exhibiting both stuttering and speech sound disorders,
- determine which aspects of a child's communication difficulties should be treated first, ]
- identify treatment goals for improving the speech fluency and speech sound production in this population,
- identify at least two challenges to effective therapy outcomes, and
- create a framework for problem-solving potential therapy challenges.
