For courses in Communication Sciences and Disorders, Stuttering and Fluency. Working with People Who Stutter: A Lifespan Approach offers a comprehensive overview of the nature and treatment of stuttering across the lifespan. Written for clinicians, speech language pathologists, and students who want a balanced understanding about the complexities of stuttering, readers will learn about the characteristics and theoretical information about people who are afflicted by this condition. This fresh, new text provides information on each age group (preschool, school-age, adolescent, and adult) and is categorized according to the affective, behavioral, and cognitive components of the disorder. The process of assessment and diagnosis is facilitated by coverage of multiple methods and a useful diagnostic checklist. Treatment chapters include multiple examples of current approaches, as well as practical therapy examples focusing on the 'how-to' of fluency therapy. Providing an 'applied emphasis' to the treatment of stuttering, this new contribution to the field should increase the competency, confidence, and enjoyment of clinicians working with people who stutter.
