From the Back Cover:

Written for clinicians, speech language pathologists, and students who want a balanced understanding about the complexities of stuttering, Working with People Who Stutter: A Lifespan Approach provides characteristics and theoretical information about people who are afflicted by this condition. A comprehensive resource, this text examines numerous assessments and treatment paradigms for working with preschoolers, school-age children, adolescents, and adults who stutter.  This book offers:

    • Full coverage of established fluency shaping, stuttering modification, and integrated approaches to stuttering.
    • A conceptual model of intervention--The House That Jack Built--and its four stages with multiple therapy activities assisting in understanding "how" to conduct fluency therapy.
    • A unique chapter on counseling based on the affective and cognitive components of stuttering.
    • A final chapter on cluttering, a complex fluency disorder that can be difficult to treat.

The goal of Working with People Who Stutter: A Lifespan Approach is to provide practical therapy activities based on research findings and clinical experience.  This new contribution to the field should increase the competency, confidence, and enjoyment of clinicians working with people who stutter.

Review:

Working with Children Who Stutter will undoubtedly become one of the classic introductory texts on stuttering.  The author is clearly an expert–both in the realm of understanding the scientific bases of stuttering, but also in the art of clinical application.  That fact comes through in every chapter.  I see this text supplanting other standard text in the field.  Students, and instructors, will appreciate the clear writing and logical organization of topics.   Perhaps one of the main strengths of this book, however, is the “fair and balanced” presentation of varying treatment approaches.  It is hard to pigeonhole this author in terms of treatment bias–and that is how it should be for an introductory text!  She should be congratulated for creating an excellent, cogent, survey text... I’m certain it will become a highly recognized book in the area of stuttering.  The availability of various books dealing with stuttering is quite high right now — to succeed, any new book needs to rise above the rest.  This book does that.” 

-- Michael Blomgren, Ph.D., CCC-SLP, University of Utah
