Summary: Differential diagnosis of stuttering from cluttering, atypical disfluency, language-disorder-related disfluency, and covert stuttering can be confusing and challenging. This webinar will provide strategies and methods for differential diagnosis of these disorders as well as ideas for developing treatment plans for each.

Summary: 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.

Summary: This webinar presents assessment and treatment strategies that lead to personalized, functional, and meaningful outcomes for adults who stutter. Speaker Vivian Sisskin uses video clips of person-centered approaches to diagnostic interviews and intervention sessions to illustrate key concepts.

Summary: This on demand webinar will provide practical, evidence-based strategies that target the psychological, emotional, and social domains of stuttering (the lower, underwater mass of the iceberg) to help clients progress from tendencies of avoidance to acceptance and openness. The speakers will discuss how to integrate basic interpersonal counseling strategies into person-centered treatment and then will guide attendees through creating acceptance-based holistic goals and objectives and documenting progress.

Summary: This on demand webinar will provide guidelines for dismissal from stuttering treatment to create a safety net for children who stutter. The speakers will discuss common barriers to appropriate discharge and strategies for overcoming these barriers so SLPs can support children to enhance quality of life and develop communication confidence. The webinar will discuss establishing person-centered, individualized, and measurable goals at the time of evaluation; ensuring client-driven and dynamic treatment; using goals to guide decisions about dismissal; and providing ongoing support and maintenance during and following dismissal. This webinar – part of the SIGnature Series – was developed by SIG 4: Fluency and Fluency Disorders.

Summary: This activity is a grouping of studies related to the understanding stuttering throughout the life span. The activity is based on articles related to attentional focus on motor control in people who stutter (PWS) and the relationship to social stress, acoustic measures of emotion in children who stutter, a study of covert stuttering throughout the lifespan, vocational stereotyping of PWS by human resource preprofessionals, and audio-based podcasts to assist in self-help for PWS. Together, these articles investigate important measures in understanding stuttering and how researchers and clinicians can better understand the condition of stuttering.

Summary: This course discusses clinical considerations for stuttering assessment and treatment when working with individuals from diverse cultural and linguistic backgrounds. Speakers focus on Black, Hispanic, Latino/a/x, and LGBTQIAP+ populations, though principles can be applied to other cultural groups. The course addresses cultural perspectives on stuttering, influence of dialect and bilingualism, family dynamics, stigma, standardized testing, language sampling, counseling, and treatment activities. Speakers explore the importance of clinicians considering the impact of their own implicit biases as well as ways to enhance and deliver culturally responsive services for clients who stutter. This course – part of the SIGnature Series – was developed by SIG 4: Fluency and Fluency Disorders.

Summary: Stuttering can have a negative effect on a child’s self-esteem and self-confidence. It also affects parents, who may not understand how to support their child. This journal self-study contains a selection of articles from the October 2018 American Journal of Speech-Language Pathology special issue based on sessions and posters from the 11th Oxford Dysfluency Conference. The conference, held every 3 years, seeks to integrate research and clinical practice in fluency disorders. Clinicians will be able to use the specific techniques and activities described in these articles to help parents and children approach stuttering differently and improve outcomes.
Presenter(s): Bridget Allen Chapman, MA, CCC-SLP
Credit(s): PDHs: 0.5, ASHA CEUs*: 0.05
Summary: This session discusses how SLPs in elementary schools can provide comprehensive fluency evaluations and appropriate treatments for their students who stutter. The speaker shares a checklist of skills to assess, discusses the available tools, and outlines treatment activities for children with varied stuttering severity levels. This course is a recorded session from the 2020/2021 online conference “Practical Solutions for Elementary Assessment, Treatment, and Collaboration.”
