The Child and Adolescent Stuttering Treatment and Activity Resource Guide responds to the continuing demand from speech-language pathologists for specific, hands-on activities that can be used in the evaluation and treatment of fluency disorders (stuttering and cluttering) in children. The guide provides specific decision-making information to help clinicians choose the goals to address, and provides ideas on activities and strategies that can be used to meet these goals. An applied book about therapy, it is full of practical therapeutic ideas, substantiated by solid research information and explanations.
