Assessing Adverse Impact in Children Who Stutter

Course: #5428 Level: Intermediate 1 Hour 47 Reviews

Speech-language pathologists are required to assess the adverse impact of communication disorders in order to qualify children for therapy. For children who stutter, this has traditionally been challenging because of the lack of measurement tools focusing on adverse impact. This presentation will describe a comprehensive approach to assessment that includes both the observable features of stuttering and the adverse impact of stuttering on a child’s life.
