This practical text brings together well-known writers from the UK, USA and Australia. It sets out to discuss the assessment and treatment of the young school aged child who stutters, aged approx. 7 to 12 years. A number of differing treatment approaches for this client group are presented in the one volume.
The contributors, as well as describing their treatment approaches, have considered the theoretical models on which their approaches are based and ways of measuring outcomes, an important topic in an age of evidence based practice. In order to gain a more comprehensive view of the school aged child, one chapter considers epidemiology of stuttering, whilst two chapters address the issue of concomitant problems such as other language problems and ADHD.
This text is written for students and clinicians working with children who stutter. It will also be of interest to researchers.
