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 school-aged 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 liked the way he presented the information. It was easy to follow and he repeated certain key points in his presentation enough times that the listener would be able to retain the info and pass the test easily.
