Evaluating a Young Child Who Stutters’ Chances of Persisting: What We Know And What We Can Do
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 is one of the most pressing issues related to working with young children who stutter. In this 1 hour 15 minute presentation, Cara M. Singer, Ph.D., CCC-SLP of Grand Valley State University presents the latest research in which children who stutter were evaluated and followed to help identify ways to differentiate children who eventually recover from those who persist. She presents a review of the current literature and findings from a recent study based on evaluation practices of speech-language pathologists in order to identify where we are in our current understanding of stuttering persistence and recovery. She then discusses important implications for caregivers of children who stutter and for speech-language pathologists.
