Stuttering is a complicated condition that involves more than just the production of speech disfluencies. This course will address how speech-language pathologists can use the World Health Organization’s International Classification of Functioning, Disability, and Health (ICF) to describe the entirety of the stuttering disorder to enhance both the assessment and treatment of stuttering. Goal writing and various treatment approaches for young children who stutter will be discussed. This course is part of a series of webinars on the topic of stuttering.
