From the Back Cover:

Enlisting the expertise of leading clinicians, researchers, and theorists, the editors have here compiled a complete reference for the current clinical strategies for treating stuttering and fluency disorders in both children and adults. The third edition of Stuttering and Related Disorders of Fluency retains the comprehensive scope of previous editions and provides thorough guidance for the early assessment, diagnosis, and the treatments and adjunctive therapies available for each disorder.

Features:

  • Broad overview of the current knowledge regarding the influence of language and phonology on stuttering, and the implications these factors have for assessment and treatment
  • In-depth coverage of cluttering by the country's leading experts
  • Expanded, up-to-date discussion of the assessment and treatment of stuttering in bilingual populations
  • New sections addressing pharmaceutical approaches to stuttering, including the efficacy of such treatments as well as possible side effects
  • Theoretical and practical approaches to counseling children who stutter and their families
  • Chapters on adjunctive treatments such as self-help and mutual aid groups

Ideal for students in graduate programs and clinical practicum, this handbook will also serve as an invaluable reference for practitioners in the clinical setting.
