Course: #7001Level: Advanced1 Hour 1019 Reviews

Pearson's EBP Briefs are case studies designed to assist with using evidence-based practice (EBP) in everyday clinical decision-making. This case will examine the clinical question, “What treatment options help school-age children who stutter improve their communication so they can participate fully in educational and social activities?” The related literature search and analysis, along with the resultant clinical decision and application to clinical practice, will also be discussed.

A relevant assessment tool for this case is the OASES (Yaruss & Quesal, 2010).
