Stuttering Therapy in Schools: Overcoming the Challenges
Speaker: Robert L. Dellinger, M.S., CCC-SLP, Wake County Public School System
Date: August 28, 2019
Time: 7 to 8 pm ET
Description: Providing speech-language services for children who stutter (CWS) in the school setting can be challenging. Stuttering is complex; work-setting challenges abound; and most clinicians lack comfort when working with CWS. Challenges are described based on Chmela and Johnson’s (2019) categories: Process, content, and integration. This presentation describes ongoing efforts in the Wake County Public School System to meet these challenges by maximizing clinician readiness and optimizing services for CWS. Suggestions are provided for clinicians whose school districts may not yet provide systematic support in the area of fluency disorders.
Target Audience: Speech-language pathologists, especially school-based, working with students who stutter
