Treatment Protocols for Stuttering

Plural Publishing
Free sample

This book facilitates treatment planning and implementation for clinicians by providing evidence-based treatment protocols with detailed plans for teaching fluency skills to adults and children. Each protocol gives the clinician a plan of action, in the form of scripted scenarios. Unlike step-by-step directions, which can leave room for ambiguity, these scripts specify the anticipated verbal and nonverbal actions the clinician and child are expected to exhibit.

Protocols for all major fluency targets are included, each containing a specific plan of action with examples of target behaviors for each fluency skill for an adult or child. These protocols save treatment planning time by presenting the clinician with procedures that have been proven effective in clinical and experimental studies, eliminating the need for clinicians to research teaching exemplars. Each procedure is designed as a self-sufficient, separate entity, so that clinicians need not refer back and forth to teach a particular skill.
