            Working with people who stutter: Working with adolescents-adults who stutter

Description:   The workshop is aimed at speech, language therapists with already some basic knowledge on stuttering. During the 4 parts of the workshop, fluency treatment in different age ranges will be discussed, i.e. preschoolers, school-age children, and adolescents/adults. Participants are encouraged to bring in examples of their own cases throughout different parts of the workshop. Although initially some theoretical frameworks will be discussed, the focus lies primarily on gaining practical skills in working with people who stutter. This is done through the use of videos and role play exercises.
