We will soon be distributing “Fun with Fluency for
the School-Age Child” by Patty Walton. Focused on school children aged 7 to 12 years, this tool is designed to guide the clinician with a step-by-step process for treating stuttering. Well organised and practical, this therapy manual addresses:
- Treatment planning
- Strategies for fluency shaping, modification and maintenance
- Working with attitudes and emotions
- Parent counselling
- Involving teachers
- Techniques to maximise the success of therapy
Each chapter includes activities and therapy suggestions designed to meet the more complex individual needs of the school-age child who stutters. Reproducible handouts in the manual appendix allow for easy practice, therapy and information sharing, supported by an accompanying CD-ROM. Information about support resources and websites devoted to stuttering are also provided.
“Fun with Fluency for the School-Age Child” will be released in mid-September 2012. If you are interested in pre-ordering the manual please leave your email here to reserve your kit.
