The course also will focus on a discussion how assessment data can be used to create goals and treatment activities for children who stutter. The course will include specific strategies and techniques within the framework of a multidimensional approach to treatment.

It is broken down into different areas like cognitive, affective, linguistic, motor, and social areas.
Review by: Member on December 29, 2012
Examples given
Review by: Member 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.

Good examples of different areas of treatment.
Review by: Member on July 19, 2012
This is a wonderful framework for assessment and treatment with school age children who stutter. It has provided me with some of the missing links that I was searching for in my therapy with these students. He is clearly very skilled in this area and was able to communicate the important aspects of stuttering treatment directly and consisely!Much appreciation!!!!! Very helpful!

This is a nice introduction CALMS model. I was provided with ideas that I can use in my practice tomorrow with students.
Review by: Member on December 27, 2011
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.
Review by: Member on December 27, 2011
Applicable and good examples
Review by: Member on December 13, 2011
Attention to the linguistic aspect of stuttering
Review by: Member on December 10, 2011
Gave me a lot of areas to address during therapy and ideas to create opportunities for the client to succeed.
Review by: Member 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.
Review by: Member 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.
Review by: Member on November 27, 2011
Specific with strong basis for all components of therapy and evaluation. Very practical!
Review by: Member 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. He did not appear to have a problem in getting the objectives across. I have found with some other courses I have taken that presenters seem flustered by the time factor. Excellent information, easy to understand and follow!
Review by: Member 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.
