Survey research reveals that SLPs feel poorly prepared to treat children and adults who stutter. Here's How to Do Stuttering Therapy serves as a practical guide to provide stuttering therapy, based upon a well-articulated philosophy of the disorder. The book is a practical guide that provides readers with a solid rationale for assessment and treatment, but does not dwell on theories, philosophies, or specific programs. Rather, the orientation is toward application, while providing a justification based upon research and the information we know about stuttering.
The uniqueness of the book is the focus on applied practice and functional applications. While other books present theory and structure of therapeutic approaches, Here's How to Do Stuttering Therapy offers a hands-on, eclectic approach centered on the needs of the client, rather than the structure of any specific treatment program.
