Breaking Away From the Fluent Lens: Using Scaling and Challenges to Empower Kids and Teens

2.0 Hours

Course Description

Most speech-language pathologists view stuttering through the lens of fluency. This course will introduce practical strategies for refocusing on empowering clients who stutter to speak confidently and achieve their own speaking goals. Scaling can be used to identify clients’ personal goals and manage tension while speaking in their authentic voices. Communication, voluntary stuttering, and art challenges help clients’ work towards their goals.
