Helping SLPs Provide More Effective Stuttering Therapy

Many speech-language pathologists are uncomfortable working with people who stutter...Fortunately, effective training can help!

I have specialized in stuttering for more than 25 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.

Continuing Education Seminars

I have given more than 675 lectures, workshops, and seminars for clinicians, students, and researchers. My clinical training programs are filled with practical treatment strategies that you can apply immediately in your daily clinical practice to help those who stutter. Visit the Seminars page for more information about presentations on the following topics:

  • Conducting efficient, comprehensive diagnostic evaluations
  • Making appropriate treatment recommendations
  • Writing measurable treatment goals that foster success
  • Enhancing generalization across communication settings
  • Improving motivation and helping clients overcome barriers to success
  • Increasing parental involvement and creating a supportive communication environment
  • Educating teachers and others about stuttering
  • Minimizing the harmful effects of bullying and teasing
