This DVD provides viewers with a framework for developing interventions for preschool children who stutter and for their families. Using the 'Demands and Capacities' model to guide treatment planning. Sheryl Gottwald, Ph.D., CCC-SLP, of the University of New Hampshire identifies environmental variables to consider when constructing goals for the family.
Likewise, Dr. Gottwald reviews the skill areas that contribute to fluency and highlights those areas that may benefit from child-directed early intervention sessions. Research presented in the 55-minute DVD supports these recommendations.
Special thanks to Boston University and the Stuttering Foundation workshop attendees.
