New Book on Stuttering Therapy

We are pleased to announce that Here’s How to do Stuttering Therapy by Gary Rentschler, PhD, will be published in August.

The uniqueness of this book is the focus on applied practice and functional applications. While other books present theory and structure of therapeutic approaches, Rentschler’s offers a hands-on, eclectic approach centered on the needs of the client, rather than the structure of any specific treatment program.
