Our free Practical Tips Handouts can help you help people who stutter and their families and caregivers. We cover topics such as setting treatment goals, teaching children about the speech mechanism ("speech machine"), creating a speech notebook, enhancing fluency (including "fluency shaping" and other speech modification strategies), as well as strategies for managing or handling moments of stuttering ( such as cancellation, pull-out / easing out, and preparatory set / easing in), improving communication attitudes, and increasing quality of life. This is also the place to find coverage of advanced topics like covert stuttering, microagressions, desensitization methods, fostering generalization, atypical disfluencies, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), neurogenic and psychogenic stuttering, minimizing bullying (including giving a classroom presentation), getting started with telepractice or virtual therapy, clarifying facts and myths about stuttering, educating teachers about stuttering, and much more!
Please print these handouts, photocopy them, share them, pin them, and use them however they are helpful! More information about all of these topics is included in our books and therapy guides. Subscribe to our newsletter and follow us on social media to find out when we post new content.
