            Working with parents of preschool and school-age children who stutter

Description:   The workshop is not suited for people who have already attended the ‘Working with people who stutter: addressing cognitions, emotions, and behaviors at different ages.’ because of possible overlap.
This workshop is aimed at speech, language therapists with already some basic knowledge on stuttering.
During these 2 days we will;

a) focus on the rationale for involving parents in stuttering treatment,

b) provide an overview of the different programs mainly focusing on parental guidance in CWS,

c) provide you the tools for setting up evidence-based parental counselling sessions. Participants are encouraged to apply learned elements to their own treatment plans of preschool and school-age children who stutter.


Lecturer:         Kurt Eggers holds a BA in Medicine, MA in SLP, and PhD. in Biomedical Sciences and Developmental Psychology. He is a researcher/docent at the SLP dept. of Thomas More U College (Belgium), associate professor at the Psychology & SLP dept. at Turku University (Finland) and visiting lecturer at the U of Oulu (Finland). He is coordinator of the European Clinical Specialization in Fluency Disorders (, President Elect of the International Fluency Association (, and IALP fluency committee member. Kurt has worked clinically for many years, has lectured/published internationally and his research focuses on the role of temperament, attention, and executive functioning in stuttering and speech disfluencies in different populations.
