Fluency Disorders is a comprehensive textbook that offers readers in-depth information about fluency-related issues across a range of clinical populations including developmental and acquired stuttering, cluttering, and various types of developmental and acquired language impairment.

Key features of this text include detailed reviews of contemporary research on both typical and disordered fluency, along with analyses of (1) processes integral to fluent communication; (2) various professional perspectives on fluency; (3) etiologies and characteristics of disorders affecting speech fluency; (4) effects of fluency impairment on communication and quality of life; and (5) current clinical approaches to assessing speech fluency and minimizing the impact of fluency disorders through evidence-based prevention and treatment principles.

Fluency Disorders is ideal for graduate courses on stuttering and related disorders of fluency. Readers will learn to describe fluency disorders within the framework of communication and to develop the knowledge and skills necessary for working with clients who have impaired fluency. This approach is consistent with current standards for clinical certification specified by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association's Council for Clinical Certification (CFCC).

The text is divided into four main sections:

Foundational Concepts addresses fundamental fluency concepts, the nature of fluent speech production, approaches to describing fluency, and fluency characteristics of typical speakers. This section also addresses issues related to individual differences, cultural and linguistic influences, and fluency changes over the lifespan.Etiologies and Characteristics of Fluency Disorders offers detailed information about the causes, symptoms, and correlates of developmental stuttering, cluttering, and acquired stuttering, as well as descriptions of fluency patterns observed in various language disorders and genetic syndromes.Clinical Assessment explores key fluency assessment principles, practical methods for collecting and analyzing fluency-related data, and approaches to interpreting assessment results and formulating treatment recommendations.Treatment Approaches includes evidence-based principles and strategies for facilitating clients’ fluency functioning, methods for individualizing treatment plans and evaluating treatment outcomes, and an overview of contemporary approaches used to treat fluency disorders across the lifespan.

With specific, easy-to-follow instructions for conducting clinical procedures, decision-making diagrams, reference tables, and comprehensive coverage of normal bases, disorders, and evidence-based practice, Fluency Disorders is truly distinguishable from other texts in the field. 

 A Guide to School Services in Speech-Language Pathology, Third Edition serves as an introductory overview for the college student who is ready to embark on his or her school-based student teaching experience and thus is ideal for instructors of methods courses preparing practicum students for school-based experiences. Not only is it an excellent text for novices to the field, but it is also a very useful resource for the practicing, school-based speech-language pathologist.

Beginning with history related to school-based speech-language pathology services -- including a discussion of legal mandates (e.g., the Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act, No Child Left Behind Act, Every Student Succeeds Act, and the Americans with Disabilities Act) -- the text then delves into a description of service delivery models; an introduction to the concept of a workload analysis approach to caseload standards in schools and example implementation strategies; a display of concrete, real-life success stories; and an offering of strategies for using evidence-based practice, proactive behavior management, conflict resolution, professional collaboration, conferencing and counseling skills, cultural competencies, goal writing, informal assessment procedures, and creating testing accommodations. A new chapter provides the evidence base for links between language, literacy, and the achievement of school standards. This chapter is a must-read for every school speech-language pathologist.

Real-life scenarios based on experiences shared by public school speech-language pathologists give the reader concrete examples upon which to scaffold the complex professional concepts. Chapter summaries provide an overview of the major points presented. Questions at the end of each chapter are designed to engage the reader in analysis and comprehension of material, and vocabulary related to each chapter is conveniently defined at the start of each chapter so that the reader can better grasp the subject matter within.
