Speaker: Cara M. Singer Ph.D., CCC-SLP, Grand Valley State University
Date: April 22nd, 2020
Time: 7:00-8:30 PM ET
Description: Over twenty years ago, evaluating whether a child who stutters is likely to be one of the 80% of children who recover from stuttering or one of the 20% who go on to persist was identified as one of the most pressing issues related to working with young children who stutter. Since then, many children who stutter have been evaluated and followed to help identify ways to differentiate children who eventually recover from those who persist. A review of the literature and findings from a recent study based on evaluation practices of speech-language pathologists will be shared and discussed in order to identify (a) where we are at in our current understanding of stuttering persistence (and recovery) and (b) important implications for caregivers of children who stutter and speech-language pathologists.
Target Audience: Speech-Language Pathologists, Families of Children who Stutter, Researchers
There is no fee for this event.
