The author, who himself has stuttered since early childhood, brings more than 40 years of clinical expertise to this expanded and updated third edition. The book examines both contemporary and historical theories of the etiology of stuttering, cluttering, neurogenic acquired stuttering, and psychogenic acquired stuttering. Readers will find indispensable information on the symptomatology, etiology, development, evaluation, and management of these disorders, including new information on the prevention of stuttering as an impairment, a disability, a handicap, and an overlay. Because the abnormal behaviors exhibited by all children and adults who have a particular fluency disorder are not the same, this comprehensive volume also offers important information for evaluating/describing behaviors that define stuttering problems and for differentiating stuttering from normal disfluency and other fluency disorders. In addition, readers will learn how to establish therapy! goals and develop intervention strategies for achieving them. Included among many outstanding features of this fine text are guidelines for meeting the requirement of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association's Knowledge and Skills Acquisition (KASA) initiative and a list of organizations and Internet resources to use in networking as well as in accessing any specific, clinically relevant information about fluency disorders and help in coping with them.
