It really cleared up some questions I had about cluttering and gave me suggestions on therapy approaches. And, I can apply it immediately!
Review by: Janet on September 26, 2014
Very informative and helpful.
Review by: Zulemy on September 25, 2014
good questions to consider in therapy. e.g. Is it how i said it; is it what i said
Review by: Donna on September 18, 2014
This was one of the best in-depth descriptions of cluttering that I have seen. It fit one of my clients to the letter. It was good to see validation of what I've been doing in response to her needs.
Review by: alycia on September 17, 2014
Clear, concise descriptions, concrete examples, and real-life strategies for treatment.
Review by: Paul on September 14, 2014
I like the fact on this presentation that the question and answer period is included (as it is on all) but there were poignant questions and straight forward responses.
Review by: Marybeth on September 12, 2014
It broke down the areas to focus on and gave good information in those areas.

Practical. Recent research reported clearly to help with writing goals that are based on current research.
Review by: Caryn on July 28, 2014
Very good information to know, be aware of, and be able to recognize when someone may have speech cluttering.
Review by: Mindy on July 25, 2014
understandable and applicable
Review by: Lucinda on July 24, 2014
very helpful in terms of better understanding the disorder, but especially in terms of what to address and work on with the disorder. I have found plenty of information online explaining how the disorder is different from stuttering but nothing talking about how the therapy focus is different and how to break down the process of working on those goals.
Review by: Dianna on July 10, 2014
Cluttering is an area that I am not that familiar with, nor how to treat it. This course really helped clarify the issue and provided a good framework for treatment.

Straightforward strategies!
Review by: Karen on June 2, 2014
Dr. Scott has identified the main features of a sound therapy program for a person who clutters. The information provided offers an excellent starting point in therapy with people who "clutter". She also presented effective ways to encourage the client to get "on board" with therapy.
Review by: Kris on May 23, 2014

Review by: Paul on May 18, 2014

Review by: Sharon on May 7, 2014
Clearly organized, realistic and functional treatment ideas presented.
Review by: Renee on May 4, 2014
Very helpful information and useful strategies which I will apply both professionally and personally. I suspect (along with another SLP) that my son is cluttering when he communicates, and I am presently seeking after a professional diagnosis in order to identify what is wrong and get him the therapy that he needs to help him. One question I have is: is another characteristic of cluttering when the voice inflections go up on the last part of a sentence (sometimes with repetitions and sometimes not)? I would be interested to know. Thanks for the great presentation!
Review by: Rachel on May 3, 2014

Great information and presentation.
Review by: Beth on December 4, 2013
I never really understood cluttering and now I have a much better understanding. I was always told it is like stuttering and that never made sense to be because than wouldn't we disgnose the individual with a stutter and treat it the same way we treat stuttering. This was so helpful!

Review by: Shana on October 14, 2013
I thought this was an excellent presentation because it really explained cluttering in detail. During my graduate program, cluttering was mainly described as "talking too fast." However, this presentation really broke it down for me.

keeping the definition and treatment focused on the actual cluttering and not the language based aspects. The clarity helps with comprehension and treatment strategies.
