on August 2, 2014
Speaker easy to listen to, used clear explanations and examples. Several hand-outs, including graphs.

on December 29, 2012
on December 26, 2012
I like that this addressed components of stuttering other than just the motoric aspects. I think the CALMS model is a much more comprehensive way to assess the unique characteristics of each child and provides a solid way to evaluate progress qualitatively.

This is a wonderful framework for assessment and treatment with school age children who stutter.

I love that the model Healey is teaching is a colaboration of many different components and is all supported by many researchers over the many years of research. I really appreciate the model and I am lookingforward to using it in my assessment and therapeutic activities. I also feel that parents will view this model as not only educational but helpful in implementing strategies at home as well. This was very helpful.
on December 27, 2011
Applicable and good examples
on December 13, 2011
Attention to the linguistic aspect of stuttering

Gave me a lot of areas to address during therapy and ideas to create opportunities for the client to succeed.
on December 6, 2011
The content of Dr. Healey's course is very comprehensive and contains critical components needed with my current caseload. His approach makes sense and I look forward to using it with my students who stutter.
on December 4, 2011
The course was great in that it showed me how to incorporate drawings into discussing how a student feels while they are talking. Fluency to me has always been an area that is difficult to address in therapy as well as helping my clinical fellows. This was a great piece to incorporate.

on November 22, 2011
The material was presented in a way that was easy to follow even though the presenter usually has much longer to speak about the topic.

Excellent information, easy to understand and follow!
on November 18, 2011
I liked the tips about how to help kids discuss and deal with emotions (having them draw pictures, "paper toss" of emotions, writing feeling about various speech tasks, etc). I also thought the CALMS model was explained well and is very good assessment tool.
