Treating the School Age Stutterer: A Guide for Clinicians. Publication No. 14.
Dell, Carl W., Jr.
This five-chapter book describes how clinicians (speech teachers, therapists, pathologists) can work effectively with young stutterers. The information contained in this booklet was obtained through an extensive program of study, testing, and research carried on for several years. The chapter on the "borderline stutterer" includes information on diagnosing and identifying the child who stutters, indirect therapy for the mildly stuttering child, and more direct therapeutic methods for the borderline stutterer. A description of the "mild stutterer" is given in the second chapter, and information is presented on treatment, reducing the severity of stuttering, and dealing with the emotional nature of the situation. The "confirmed stutterer" is discussed in the third chapter, and information is included on building fluency and independence, changing stuttering to a milder form, and various treatment methods. A chapter about working with parents considers ways to get parents involved and the parent-therapist relationship. The fifth chapter discusses working with teachers and covers such issues as the teacher's role in the remediation process. (CB)
