Stuttering Intervention promotes an individualized, collaborative approach to assessment and treatment with people who stutter and their families. Written for student clinicians and professionals in speech-language pathology, this book provides specific clinical procedures with accompanying rationale. Also, it outlines an interdisciplinary perspective, while maintaining sensitivity toward multicultural and other diversities.

In this work, you can find detailed information and directions regarding the intervention process for clients from preschool age through senior adulthood. What's more, you'll find a clinical method that is --

  • Practical
  • Directly applied
  • Reliable
  • Accountable
  • Theoretically grounded
  • Based on research across human service disciplines

The author brings together elements of clinical practice not often integrated, such as the significance of --

  • Clients' and clinicians' beliefs, attitudes, and values on the therapeutic process
  • Family systems and interdisciplinary teams
  • Multicultural considerations
  • The clinician and the client-clinician relationship
  • Efficacy studies
  • ASHA's policies regarding accreditation of training programs and certification requirements
  • Professional preparation and lifelong learning
  • and much more

You'll find this book unique in its scope and in David Shapiro's strong belief in the human aspects of intervention. His use of personal anecdotes and clinical portraits delineating the steps for assessment and treatment grounds this book firmly in the practical realm. Written in a style that is not only readable but engaging, stimulating, and challenging, Stuttering Intervention is an invaluable resource that helps clinicians design and implement effective intervention with people who stutter and their families. This book is a long-awaited, major breakthrough and should not be missed.
