Nice examples and positive views of stuttering
Review by: Sherry on February 22, 2015
Good instead of excellent for two reasons. One, not enough time spent on discussing speech modification vs stuttering modification. The explanations were very quick and short and a little confusing. Two, at the end, I could hear the moderator speaking over the presenter and it was very irritating.

Great topics, easy to follow
Review by: Delores on July 31, 2014
The presenter was very knowledgeable about the importance of including the parent. I liked his explanation for why we should praise the child's efforts rather than the results - and his explanation of how we can explain "purposeful stuttering" to the parent.
