Evaluation and treatment procedures for young children who stutter have changed dramatically in recent years. Gone are the days when clinicians and parents should avoid talking about stuttering in an attempt to prevent a child from developing awareness about his speaking difficulties. Today, we know that we can provide direct therapy--even for very young children--that helps children improve their speech fluency; develop healthy, appropriate communication attittudes; and strengthen their communication skills. Early Childhood Stuttering Therapy: A Practical Guide provides a comprehensive and detailed description of the entire intervention process for preschool and young school-age children who stutter, starting with the initial contact and pre-referral process, through conducting a comprehensive evaluation that focuses on the risk that the child might continue to stutter, to providing less-direct therapy to help parents and others create fluency-facilitating environments to enhance a child's fluency, and all the way through providing direct therapy to help the child improve his fluency and communication attitudes. This 320-page, spiral-bound book contains numerous reproducible forms, worksheets, checklists, treatment goals, and activities that you can use in therapy right away to help your students and their families--and to help you increase your confidence in your ability to provide effective therapy for students who stutter.

Minimizing Bullying for Children Who Stutter
($54 complete set)
by William P. Murphy, Robert W. Quesal, Nina Reardon-Reeves, & J. Scott Yaruss
A significant portion of children who stutter report that they are bullied about their speech and that they struggle with the effects of bullying. Reduced self-esteem and self-confidence caused by bullying often increase their feelings of social isolation and make it even harder for them to communicate effectively. Fear of being bullied may lead children who stutter to stay silent instead of participating in classroom and social activities. The tested strategies in Minimizing Bullying for Children Who Stutter can help your clients break free from the burden of bullying. This comprehensive program includes a 125-page guidebook for speech-language pathologists, as well as accompanying workbooks for parents, teachers, school administrators, and children who stutter. Each component of the program includes worksheets, forms, therapy activities, and rationale so that everyone involved can work together to diminish--and even prevent--the negative consequences of bullying.

By including many innovative and previously undocumented approaches, it broadens the discourse and extends the boundaries of thinking about stammering theory. A key and unique aspect of the book is that the majority of chapters will be co-authored by therapists and clients in order to deepen our knowledge of therapy in line with recent trends in narrative-based practice.
