"The purpose of the text is to provide students and speech-language pathologists (SLPs) with a current and thorough text on fluency disorders, including etiology, assessment, and treatment. The primary focus of the book is neurodevelopment stuttering (childhood onset), but the text also incorporates cluttering and acquired fluency disorders. The text includes evidenced-based practice as well as client perspectives and experiences. This is a truly comprehensive text, which is aligned with the standards of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association's Council for Clinical Certification (CFCC). The companion website provides instructors with helpful examples and assignments, as well as PowerPoint resources.[...] The author is a recognized expert in the field of fluency disorders, with numerous publications. As a person who stutters, he not only provides clinical expertise but can speak from experience about his experiences within therapy.
This 609-page, paperback text includes 18 chapters that are organized in five sections: Foundational Concepts, Neurodevelopmental Stuttering, Other Types of Fluency Disorders, Assessment, and Treatment. Each chapter includes a summary and a section of practical application questions. The first three sections provide comprehensive discussions and examples of different types of fluency disorders. The assessment section thoroughly discusses the assessment process from planning to currently available assessment tools, provided rating scales, and challenges in diagnosing across ages and concomitant diagnoses. Therapy planning is also addressed in depth. The chapters addressing therapy include interventions for preschool, school aged children, adolescents, and adults, with an emphasis on holistic therapy. Helpful tables and examples are provided. Numerous current references are provided for each chapter."
