Presented by Kristin Chmela

In this one hour video, Kristin Chmela, M.A., CCC-SLP, BCS-F, discusses a framework for helping children who stutter evolve their skills as communicators.  This treatment framework for children who stutter ages 8-18, is based upon the multidimensional nature of stuttering and the importance of varied treatment outcomes over the course of development.  It encompasses five areas of focus, broadens a child's perspective (beyond stuttering-fluency), and emphasizes the positive mindset of choosing to grow as a communicator.  Each of the five areas of focus (Attentive, Assertive, Confident, Effective, Proactive) include actions one may engage in and are derived from evidence with our field, as well as the fields of psychology and neuroscience.  This presentation defines and applies this framework across a case study.
