About this live virtual workshop:

This study day is aimed at speech, language therapists with already some basic knowledge on fluency disorders. Most SLPs are very familiar with stuttering but less with cluttering. Cluttering is a speech fluency disorder that is often seen in speech clinics and is characterized by a disordered speech rate and rhythm, problems with intelligibility, and rapid jerky spurts of speech with abnormal phrasing patterns. Only during the last decade, there has been an increased interest in the disorder with more specific publications coming out.

While some definitions and theoretical frameworks will be discussed, the focus lies primarily on gaining practical skills in the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of clients who clutter.

 

Learning outcomes

 

-Participants have increased insight in definitions, symptomatology, and epidemiology of cluttering

-Participants can administer and interpret the Predictive Cluttering Inventory 

-Participants can assess cluttering through quantitative and qualitative speech analyses (speech rate, disfluency analyses, speech motor skills) using different protocols

-Participants can make a differential diagnosis with stuttering

-Participants have insight in the treatment and selection of treatment goals for cluttering
