Stuttering: Current Concepts and Guidance for Intervention

# e153   Stuttering: Current Concepts and Guidance for Intervention

by J. Scott Yaruss, PhD, CCC-SLP, BCS-F, F-ASHA

0.25 CEUs

$ 44.00


Stuttering is a complicated disorder with a complicated history. Numerous theories about the cause of stuttering have been presented, and countless treatments have been advocated. One consequence of this proliferation of ideas is the fact that many speech-language pathologists feel uncertain with regard to their knowledge base and treatment skills for helping those who stutter. Lack of knowing which approach is "best" may lead clinicians to question if their therapy strategies are providing benefit for their clients.

Fortunately, the field has seen a growing consensus about etiology and intervention, so clinicians can feel more confident that the information they provide is consistent with current views. This workshop will provide a survey of those views, as well as a comprehensive model of the disorder that can be used to guide both the assessment and treatment process. The goal of this course is to help speech-language pathologists feel more comfortable and more confident in their ability to help individuals who stutter. Offered for 0.25 ASHA CEUs – 2.5 contact hours.

At eCourse conclusion, participants will be able to:

  1. Describe the nature of stuttering (both the behavior and the disorder) from the perspective of the speaker and explain how this view can be used to inform intervention.
  2. Explain the components of the World Health Organization's Int'l Classification of Functioning, Disability, and Health and describe how it relates to the evaluation and treatment of stuttering.
  3. Describe 3 aspects of the etiology of stuttering and explain how knowledge of these aspects supports intervention with individuals who stutter. 

A score of 80% or better must be received on the post test in order 
to receive a certificate of completion.
