Effective Stuttering Therapy
Many speech-language pathologists are uncomfortable working with people who stutter.
Fortunately, effective training can help!
I have attended many fluency
conferences over the past 20 years. This has been the best by far. Dr. Yaruss was engaging and very informative. I feel
like I can leave here today and implement some very useful
techniques with my fluency students tomorrow! - Workshop Participant
I have specialized in stuttering
for more than 20 years. As a clinician, teacher, and researcher,
I strive to share my clinical
expertise and current research perspective with
speech-language pathologists to help them feel more confident and
competent in their skills for helping people who stutter.
