I needed to hear the exact steps in the process of an evaluation. Dr. Gabel was very thorough in providing these steps and the tools necessary to do so. Thank you.
Review by: Leonard on September 11, 2012
The presenter gave a thoroughly simplified approach to fluency assessment which gave a strong emphasis on the qualities of the therapist as being critical to a successful diagnostic assessment. He projected a positive energy which, accompanied with the obvious fact that he himself copes with fluency difficulty, would make any client feel assured of benefitting from him as their therapist.
