Fluency Disorders, Second Edition is a vital resource for graduate courses on stuttering and related disorders of fluency. This thoroughly updated text features accessible and comprehensive coverage of fluency disorders across a range of clinical populations, including those with developmental and acquired stuttering, cluttering, and various types of developmental and acquired language impairment.

Information in the text is aligned with current standards for clinical certification specified by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association's Council for Clinical Certification (CFCC). Readers will learn how to assess and treat fluency disorders within the frameworks of communication and speech production, and will gain practical knowledge about how to work with clients/patients who have impaired fluency

The text is separated into five key sections: foundational concepts, childhood stuttering, other types of fluency disorders, clinical assessment, and treatment approaches. Together, these topics make the comprehensive Fluency Disorders a truly distinguishable text in the field of speech-language pathology.
