Enlisting the expertise of leading clinicians, researchers, and theorists,
the editors have here compiled a complete reference for the current clinical
strategies for treating stuttering and fluency disorders in both children and
adults. The third edition of Stuttering and Related Disorders of Fluency retains the comprehensive scope of previous editions and provides thorough guidance for the early assessment, diagnosis, and the treatments and adjunctive therapies available for each disorder.



Features:



  • Broad overview of the current knowledge regarding the
    influence of language and phonology on stuttering, and the implications these
    factors have for assessment and treatment

  • In-depth coverage of cluttering by the country's
    leading experts

  • Expanded, up-to-date discussion of the assessment and
    treatment of stuttering in bilingual populations

  • New sections addressing pharmaceutical approaches to
    stuttering, including the efficacy of such treatments as well as possible side
    effects

  • Theoretical and practical approaches to counseling
    children who stutter and their families

  • Chapters on adjunctive treatments such as self-help and
    mutual aid groups

Ideal for students in graduate programs and clinical
practicum, this handbook will also serve as an invaluable reference for practitioners in the clinical setting.
