In this 54-minute film, Joseph Donaher, Ph.D., CCC-SLP, of The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, introduces the clinical characteristics of ADHD, the literature on stuttering and ADHD, and clinical management accommodations that may improve therapeutic outcomes for children who stutter who present with coexisting attention and focusing concerns.

In this 2 hour presentation, Vivian Sisskin, M.S., CCC-SLP , from the University of Maryland, summarizes the literature pertaining to disfluency in autism, and provides basic principles to aid in differential diagnosis and treatment planning. A case study, demonstrating effective treatment for final part-word repetitions, highlights a problem-solving approach to clinical management, using both learning style in autism and strategies from traditional fluency therapies.

In this presentation, in an effort to frame these claims more positively, Dr. Nan Bernstein Ratner, Ed.D., argues that there is both research and common-sense evidence that these claims are wrong. She also suggests that in the debate about best practices in fluency treatment, there is indeed a need to search out and integrate many sources of evidence that either support our approach to a case or suggest a need for reconsideration, adjustment or change.

In this 2-hour, 55 minute video, renowned clinician Vivian Siskin, M.S., presents a multidimensional approach as a foundation to help children address thoughts and feelings that sometimes co-exist with stuttering. She offers concrete strategies to help children become more mindful about communication, to answer others’ questions about what stuttering is and why they talk the way they do, and to recognize how feelings influence their behavior.

Cognitive-behavioral therapy is one approach for helping children change their thoughts and feelings about stuttering. These changes can lead to better therapy outcomes as children develop coping strategies, test their beliefs about listener reactions, and take risks like using speech tools in front of others.

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.

This exciting 3 hour video program features renowned audiologist and expert counselor, David M. Luterman, D.Ed .

In this engaging 77 minute lecture, Dr. Joe Donaher of the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia provides a framework for clinicians to view childhood stuttering from an evidence-based perspective. He presents the latest research in stuttering onset and development, genetics, neurophysiology, and speech motor control. He then helps clinicians understand how to apply this information to the children on their caseloads through the use of several case examples, emphasizing the importance of viewing each child as an individual and creating a strong therapeutic alliance.
