Treating Young Children Who Stutter: A Family-Focused Approach
The program was originally aired as part of the “Case Studies in Fluency Disorders” online conference (October 31-November 12, 2012).
In this session, you'll get a brief overview of the assessment process along with a detailed description of a family-focused treatment approach for young children (2–7 years) who stutter. You'll also learn about the risk factors associated with childhood stuttering, components of a thorough assessment, and key ingredients of effective individualized treatment. We'll discuss the assessment and treatment process through a framework that recognizes the affective, behavioral, and cognitive components of stuttering.
You will be able to:
- identify the risk factors associated with childhood stuttering,
- describe the components of a complete diagnostic evaluation for young children who stutter, and
- identify components of an individualized treatment approach that targets the affective, behavioral, and cognitive components of treating this population.
