In this engaging 77 minute lecture, Dr. Joe Donaher of the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia provides a framework for clinicians to view childhood stuttering from an evidence-based perspective. He presents the latest research in stuttering onset and development, genetics, neurophysiology, and speech motor control. He then helps clinicians understand how to apply this information to the children on their caseloads through the use of several case examples, emphasizing the importance of viewing each child as an individual and creating a strong therapeutic alliance.
