Course Abstract

Speech-language pathologists are required to assess the adverse impact of communication disorders in order to qualify children for therapy. For children who stutter, this has traditionally been challenging because of the lack of measurement tools focusing on adverse impact. This presentation will describe a comprehensive approach to assessment that includes both the observable features of stuttering and the adverse impact of stuttering on a child’s life.
Disclosure: This learning event will focus on the OASES (published by Pearson) and the forthcoming School-age Stuttering Therapy: A Practical Guide (published by my own company, Stuttering Therapy Resources, Inc.). It will not focus on related products or services.

i am glad that the Oasis tries to quantify negative impaqct of stuttering on the total life of the person. sometimes I think this is hard to do especially if we see a child speaking with relative few dysfluencies in speech but not speaking with such ease elsewhere.

Dr. Yaruss is knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and comfortable with the topic. Although he followed the schedule/format, he was spontaneous and interesting to listen to. He made me WANT to use the OASES with clients!
Review by: Member on July 31, 2012
Dr. Yaruss is very knowledgable and experienced with this communication disorder, and spoke clearly and effectively, emphasizing key points. I was able to answer all the questions a day later without any review of my notes because Dr. Yaruss focused on key concepts throughout the presentation. I have a much better idea on how to assess and treat stuttering in the schools, and will definitely refer to the OASES as my tool.Thank you!

Highly recommend. Completely agree with the philosophy of the presenter.
Review by: Member on July 30, 2012
The material was presented with conviction and excitement. The assessment tool he discussed appeared to be logical, and would give a better view of the client/student's point of view about their stuttering, which would lead to a more concise student driven therapy.
