Many methods have been developed to count speech disfluencies and in this 1-hour program clinicians are trained to differentiate between various types of disfluencies, code them, and analyze the data accordingly. While this is just one aspect of a comprehensive fluency assessment, it is important to obtain reliable frequency measures for assessment purposes as well as to determine treatment effectiveness.
After being trained in several methods, including Northwestern University's Systematic Disfluency Analysis (Campbell and Hill, 1987) and Vanderbilt University's disfluency counting method (Conture, 2001), Diane Parris, M.S., CCC-SLP, BRS-FD of Boston University demonstrates a pragmatic approach to scoring disfluencies using two case examples for practice.
Reproducible counting forms and slides are included.
