This course provides a discussion of key facts regarding current views about stuttering in preschool and young school-age children in an engaging Q&A format.

Importantly, they discuss when therapy is needed in this age group. Finally, the goals of the diagnostic evaluation are explained. This article will certainly help clinicians to become better-prepared to help children who stutter and their families.
