Designed for speech-language pathologists, this course will focus on identification of stuttering during the preschool years and how it differs from normal disfluencies in children 2-5 years of age.  The focus will be on the role of the speech-language pathologist in helping parents minimize their child's disfluencies. Different home environments will be discussed in their relation to stuttering as well as the impact that various events have on a young child’s speech. The presentation will conclude with discussion of when to recommend fluency therapy, what should be in place for therapy to succeed, viewpoints and questions a SLP may encounter, and appropriate responses to these questions. Offered for 0.2 ASHA CEUs – 2 contact hours.

  3. Identify the temperament most prone to underlie stuttering.
  4. List strategies parents can use to help their child avoid stuttering symptoms.
  5. Discuss parenting styles, events, and home environments that result in more fluent communication.
