Best Practice for Developmental Stuttering: Balancing Evidence and Expertise
Format(s): Journal (Online)
ASHA CEUs:
0.4
4.0
Stuttering is a complex disorder that can lead to social, emotional, and academic difficulties. Clinicians treating children who stutter must consider many factors during assessment and intervention. The articles in this clinical forum describe approaches to evidence-based practice (EBP) that balance available research with clinical expertise, while also considering the needs and desires of the patient and family. Four fluency experts use case studies to describe how they make decisions about stuttering management for a young child as well as an adolescent. Clinicians can use this information to guide how they incorporate the three components of EBP – research evidence, clinical expertise, and client preferences – into their own practice with children who stutter.

Stuttering: Treatment Strategies for Affective and Behavioral Roadblocks
Format(s): Streaming Video
ASHA CEUs:
0.05
0.5
Many individuals who stutter can learn fairly quickly, often in just a few sessions, how to produce fluent speech. However, the relapse rate is common, and people who stutter frequently complain of being unable to maintain the desired level of fluency once they leave the clinic. In this course, Lourdes Ramos-Heinrichs will present three strategies that SLPs can use when working with adolescents and adults who stutter to help these clients sustain desired levels of fluency and carry over the fluent speech to everyday speaking situations and when conversing with diverse groups. The course will introduce and discuss the use of clinical self-reports as well as techniques from solution-focused brief therapy and cognitive-behavioral therapy to help address the affective and behavioral challenges that may interfere with clients’ fluency. You’ll walk away with practical strategies to implement in your clinical practice.

Stuttering Intervention for Children: Modifications to Two Common Programs
Format(s): Journal (Online)
ASHA CEUs:
0.35
3.5
Stuttering is a particularly challenging speech disorder that can have a significant impact on a child’s self-esteem, social interactions, and academic success. Many treatment programs and techniques exist to address stuttering, and clinicians are always looking for new and better ways to help children with this disorder. This journal self-study explores the use of two specific programs – the Lidcombe and Camperdown programs – in modified situations. Articles examine the Lidcombe Program, designed for younger (preschool and some school-age) children, and discuss how clinicians can adapt the program for use in groups and for webcam delivery. A third article explores the factors that may best predict treatment time and long-term outcomes. The Camperdown Program, a treatment more often used for teens, is studied as a telehealth application to determine outcomes and child and parent reactions. SLPs working with children who stutter will benefit from a better understanding of how these programs work and how they can be adapted for more resource-efficient treatment.

Psychosocial Effects of Stuttering
Format(s): Journal (Online)
ASHA CEUs:
0.35
3.5
Stuttering is a multifaceted disorder that can have a significant impact on people who stutter, one that extends beyond the actual communication difficulties these individuals encounter. Social, emotional, and psychological issues can accompany stuttering, largely as a result of society’s depictions of and reactions to those who stutter. This journal self-study addresses these non-speech factors that speech-language pathologists often address during treatment, including the stigma associated with stuttering, the impact of stuttering on quality of life, and how the use of safety behaviors may actually inhibit the reduction of issues like anxiety. One article also provides an alternative perspective, suggesting that while some people who stutter may experience some of these psychosocial issues, they may not identify them as personally significant or wish to address them in treatment. While most of the information addresses the adult stuttering population, the concepts presented apply to children as well, and clinicians working with people of all ages who stutter will find clinically relevant information that they can begin to incorporate into their client interactions.

Advances in Stuttering Measurement and Treatment for Adults
Format(s): Journal (Online)
ASHA CEUs:
0.35
3.5
Stuttering is a challenging speech disorder that can have a significant impact on the life of the person who stutters. This journal self-study addresses issues that have been identified in the literature regarding how reliable stuttering measures actually are and how clinicians are trained to make these determinations. In addition, this course explores some newer treatment methods, using virtual reality and an approach that is different from the typical prolonged speech treatment often used. Clinicians will come away with a better understanding of the importance of measuring what they intend to measure, how training impacts measurement, and how new treatment options may assist clients who stutter.

Format(s): On Demand Webinar
ASHA CEUs:

This webinar will discuss assessment and treatment for school-age and adolescent children who stutter. The particular focus will be on how to write measurable treatment goals and design activities to help children who stutter improve their overall communication, decrease their own negative reactions to their stuttering, decrease physical tension and secondary behaviors, and improve speech fluency. Participants will leave with an understanding of how to assess and treat the affective, cognitive, and behavioral components of stuttering.

Preschool Stuttering Therapy: A Practical Approach
Format(s): On Demand Webinar
ASHA CEUs:
0.2
2.0
Speech-language pathologists often face uncertainty about whether, when, and how to treat young children who may be showing signs of early stuttering. This webinar is designed to reduce that uncertainty by presenting strategies for evaluating the risk factors that may contribute to the development of chronic stuttering. The program will describe key features of common treatment approaches that support the development of appropriate communication attitudes and involve changes to the communication environment as well as modifications to the preschooler’s speech production and communication abilities. The course will help clinicians evaluate treatment outcomes so they can apply the principles of evidence-based practice in helping young children overcome early stuttering.
