The revised edition of A Handbook on Stuttering continues its remarkable role as the authoritative, first-line resource for researchers and clinicians who work in the field of fluency and stuttering. Now in its seventh edition, this unique book goes beyond merely updating the text to include coverage of roughly 1,000 articles related to stuttering research and practice that have been published since 2008. This extended coverage integrates the more traditional body of research with evolving views of stuttering as a multi-factorial, dynamic disorder.

Comprehensive, clear, and accurate, this text provides evidence-based, practical information critical to understanding stuttering. By thoroughly examining the intricacies of the disorder,  Handbook on Stuttering lays the foundation needed before considering assessment and treatment.

 

New to the Seventh Edition

  • A completely reorganized table of contents, including two new chapters.
  • The deletion of approximately 1,000 non-peer-reviewed references from the previous edition to assure discussion of the highest quality evidence on stuttering.
  • New content on the development of stuttering across the lifespan and assessment.
  • Given the Handbook’s historic role as a primary reference for allied professionals, a new chapter that addresses myths and misconceptions about stuttering
  • Expanded coverage on role of temperament in childhood stuttering
  • Expanded coverage of brain-based research, genetics, and treatment findings.
  • A thoroughly updated chapter on conditions under which stuttering fluctuates
  • Brief tutorial overviews of critical concepts in genetics, neuroimaging, language analysis and other relevant constructs, to better enable reader appreciation of research findings.
  • A greater selection of conceptual illustrations of basic concepts and findings than in prior editions
  • Integrated cross-referencing to content across chapters
  • A PluralPlus companion website showing the deleted content from the previous edition
